Is there anything in $! ? Is there any way to get this to trigger
a better error like RaiseError in DBI ?

My experience with Oracle has been similar, where so much gets
configured from the environment variables, that the difference
between running perl code from the httpd & another user environment
can make programs not work.
Running perl code from the httpd causes not only the %ENV to be
different ( which can be a big deal ) but also causes the user
itself to be different, so there may be permissions issues.
Also if you have gone & done something like chroot or jail
your web server, lots of other things could not be working
right because of those limitations.
I would first look and see what is different between %ENV
as a user from the command line, and in mod_perl. Then I
would make those parts that might be Sybase related
the same by doing something like init %ENV variables in
Script_OnStart on in the script itself to start with.
If you still have problems, there might be a user permissions
issue, in which case I would configure the httpd to run
as the same user as you run scripts from the command line.
I would not run the web server this way in production, but
this may help isolate what the problems are. If the user
you run the web server as normally does not have read access
to the Sybase libs for example that could cause problems.
