I installed apache and php3 exactly as described in the Quick Install section of the INSTALL file with one exception:

Where it says run ./configure --with-mysql, I used ./configure --with-sybase-ct=/opt/sybase.

After finishing the Quick Installation procedures, I typed "./apachectl start" from the /www/sbin directory and got: "./apachectl start: httpd could not be started".  When startup failed, I tried typing "./httpd" which gave me a Segmentation fault.

I compiled the software on RedHat Linux 5.1 and have Sybase CTLib 10.0.0 installed in /opt/sybase.  I'm sure that CTLib is installed properly because I access my database using sybperl and sqsh.

Just to make sure, I compiled php3 as an apache module without sybase-ct support, and everything worked fine.

Any ideas on why the sybase support is broken on my machine?

Hmm, is that Sybase CTlib commercial? Because the one that's freely available, does not work on RH linux 5.x or
any other glibc2 system.  Sybperl might be working if you got a static binary compiled under a libc5 system.
If that's not the case, and you've regularly compiled Sybperl with your machine, and you actually have
glibc2 compatible CTlib - I'd appreciate access to that machine.  I never got to test the Sybase module under RH5.x.

final:  The free Sybase-CT library is not supposed to work
under RH 5.x.  It's not a PHP problem.
