RE: [ID 19991130.001]
Message ID:

Thanks everyone for help found the problem.  

I found the undefined symbol getnodebyname was located in the net_stub

I modified the CONFIG file and had in the extra libs section :

EXTRA_LIBS=-linsck -ltli -ldnet_stub -lsydb -lsdna

When running :

perl Makefile.PL  

for some obscure reason the two libraries -ltli -ldnet_stub were not
included in the EXTRALIBS and LDLOADDLIBS parameters of the Makefile in the
Dblib directory.  I had to manually amend the Makefile and add to EXTRALIBS

-ltli -ldnet_stub. 

 I was then able to do a make test which was successful and then make

		Note that sybperl is a perfectly valid solution for Sybase
access, and is
