These errors are to be expected. Your binaries should be fine.

Subject: RE: DBD-Sybase 1.07, FreeTDS 0.63, HPUX 11.11: Build problem
Thanks for the reply.
I guess I assumed that since TDS supports the host+port that the Sybase
DBD would also.
After your reply, I tried the 'make test' again, with each ENV variable
set that I could think of, and correct values in PWD. Still, it was not
referencing the proper info. Next, I hardcoded the correct values into
script in the "t" directory, and got it to complete, then installed it.
At this point, since many tests failed, I am wondering if I have a
Sybase-DBD module ? I am attaching the output of the last 'make test'.
Thanks again for your assistance.

importantly, 'make test' fails and will not complete the install.
Also, the "connect" method complains about accepting host+port
arguments, and seems to want a "Server", only. The manpage says it
If you read the man page completely you'll notice that the host+port
connect() argument are only supported when using *Sybase* openclient

I am operating in a HPUX 11.11 environment, and have the DBD::Sybase
statically linked using the freetds libs. Without passing the 'make test'
target, DBD::Sybase does not fully install (complains about not found
in @INC). I am using Perl 5.8.7, and DBI-1.48. The "make test"
appears to fail because it tries to use a non-existent (standard)
Sybase server and connect params.
Did you give it a valid server name during the configuration phase of the

Is the SYBASE env. variable set correctly to point at the FreeTDS
