Hi Jason, 

You give me too much credit.  I literally don't know where to start.  

Are you saying the code for php_mssql.dll is included in the source
distribution for PHP?  Is the file ext/sybase/php_sybase_db.c? 

I scanned README.WIN32-BUILD-SYSTEM.  What options are you passing to
configure.js.  What error messages are you seeing from the compiler when
you invoke nmake?  

I'm not going to actually build it for you, but I might be able to help
you decypher what's happening.
