While these 2 modules may not be the only ones you want / need, and that having your own source-based distribution has its advantages, I suggest you take a look here for DBI related ppm's for Win32.
Those packages are frequently up-to-date with CPAN.
There are also lots of other ppm repositories that can be of use, one of them is even run by a monk and accepts "packaging" requests under some conditions.

    thanks for the links. I had come across those repositories (the monk's, btw, hasn't been operational in a while... I remember it down a couple months ago when I first tried it). however what I can't seem to find is a working ppd of DBD::Sybase... even doesn't have one. which is why I'd love to be untethered from ActiveState... goes doesn once in a while, it happens with every host. Has worked for me all year
