The sybase documentation[1] says this:

As of PHP 5.3.0, the Sybase extension has been superseded by the sybase_ct extension and is no longer maintained. To continue using sybase you must use the sybase_ct extension.

However, the PHP 7 Migration guide[2] says that sybase_ct was removed. Something does not feel right here.

sybase_ct was removed because there wasn't anyone able/willing to maintain it - the last substantive commits to ext/sybase_ct were in 2011. It could live on in PECL if someone wanted to take over...

Indeed, no more Sybase support in the core as of PHP 7.0.0.
