dino has asked for the wisdom of the Perl Monks concerning the following question:

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)
2) 32 bin Sybase (32 bit libaries) (64 bit Sybase on this platform not yet avail).
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.
