Here's my perl -V output:

So the problem is ultimately that I need DBD::Sybase, which fails when using CPAN.

When searched around for the errors I was getting, I picked up a lot of hints that CPAN was trying to install 32-bit versions which were clashing on my 64-bit box.

When i went back to the non-prod box that was built out by a guy not with the company any more, I noticed that all the DB(I|D) modules were in the architecture specific directory:

>:/export/home/scratch/perl/lib$ find . -name DBI* ./site_perl/5.16.3/CGI/Session/Driver/ ./site_perl/5.16.3/Log/Log4perl/Appender/ ./site_perl/5.16.3/DBI ./site_perl/5.16.3/x86_64-linux/Win32/ ./site_perl/5.16.3/x86_64-linux/DBI ./site_perl/5.16.3/x86_64-linux/auto/DBI ./site_perl/5.16.3/x86_64-linux/auto/DBI/ ./site_perl/5.16.3/x86_64-linux/auto/DBI/ ./site_perl/5.16.3/x86_64-linux/auto/DBI/DBIXS.h ./site_perl/5.16.3/x86_64-linux/ ./site_perl/5.16.3/x86_64-linux/Bundle/ >:/export/home/scratch/perl/lib$ find . -name DBD* ./site_perl/5.16.3/DBD ./site_perl/5.16.3/x86_64-linux/DBD ./site_perl/5.16.3/x86_64-linux/DBI/DBD ./site_perl/5.16.3/x86_64-linux/DBI/ ./site_perl/5.16.3/x86_64-linux/auto/DBD ./site_perl/5.16.3/x86_64-linux/Bundle/DBD
Also notice that there is a DBI folder under the standard site_perl directory, but the package is only in the x86... directory. Never seen that, but again, not very experienced with building a good perl install.

From there I started looking around for 64-bit specific DBI and DBD packages and found a source for rpms. But that seems fairly tedious, I am. Truth be told, I'm not even sure that these RPM's will work.

Short version: I want DBI with DBD::Sybase and DBD::Oracle but perl complains when I try to install via CPAN.
