[freetds] DBD::Sybase + FreeTDS (0.64 + daily patch applied) errors

It looks like the include files aren't fully compatible with the ASE 15.0 

The offending code in DBD::Sybase:

#if defined(CS_VERSION_150)
    if(cs_ver == CS_VERSION_150)

So it appears that FreeTDS defines CS_VERSION_150, but not BLK_VERSION_150


#if defined(CS_DATE_TYPE)
    case CS_DATE_TYPE: bytes = sizeof(CS_DATE); break;
    case CS_TIME_TYPE: bytes = sizeof(CS_TIME); break;
#if defined(CS_BIGINT_TYPE)
    case CS_BIGINT_TYPE: bytes = sizeof(CS_BIGINT); break;
    case CS_USMALLINT_TYPE: bytes = sizeof(CS_USMALLINT); break;
    case CS_UINT_TYPE: bytes = sizeof(CS_UINT); break;
    case CS_UBIGINT_TYPE: bytes = sizeof(CS_UBIGINT); break;

This would seem to imply that freetds defines the CS_DATE_TYPE macro, but 
not the CS_DATE typedef.

You can probably fix the problem by adding something like:

#undef CS_VERSION_150

right before the first function definition in dbdimp.c

Hello all,

I have the following configuration:
- CentOS 4.4
- FreeTDS (0.64 stable + daily patch)
- DBD::Sybase 1.07

I want to compile the DBD::Sybase module and I get the following errors:

I can compile DBD::Sybase using the stable version of FreeTDS (0.64), but 
it doesn't work with FreeTDS 0.64 + daily patch.
You can get the daily patch from: 
I'm not sure if this problem is FreeTDS or DBD::Sybase related, so I'm 
writing on both lists.

Any help will be appreciated.
