Is there a way to build a perl module that links to 32 bit libraries on a 64 bit machine using a 64 bit built perl?
1) x86_64 rhel 4 machine (default perl rpms installed)

3) sybperl module when built tries to link to 32 bit Sybase libraries and fails.
I could build a different perl but that increases maintenance.
