[tpm] Sybase Open Client library

Perl program => DBD::Sybase => DBI => some binary libXXX.so file that 
actually communicates to the host where the DB is located

It's the binary file which I need to find.

freeTDS has worked at least partially. I also downloaded Sqsh, a 
wonderful command line SQL client, and it connects fine to dev & prod 
databases. ONly problem with it is that while I can run sqsh -i filename 
to run the sql in the file, I can't do sqsh -C 'select * from ... ' It 
tells me there's no data for -C.

DBD::Sybase is failing to build, which I'll investigate tomorrow, but 
progress is progress,  so they say.
