I'm not too sure about Sybase, but from what I understand it is not too
difficult. I use FreeTDS here (which supports Sybase natively) to access a
Microsoft SQL server for a custom horde application. If the sybase support
works as well as the MS-SQL support, you shouldn't have a problem. You could
also try using a MS-SQL server type, or manually specifying the complete
database dsn (hostspec://user:pass@host:port/dbname) As far as getting support
for freetds installed... umm... USE="freetds" emerge php :P
