Have you tried running a 'make check' in your FreeTDS directory to run
the library's self-tests?  I know I had to tweak a couple of things
before I got PHP to work with a MS SQL server, and most of them came in
the stages of getting FreeTDS working correctly before I even tried to
build it into PHP.

Is your SYBASE environment variable set correctly?  Have you
double-checked the sybase-related settings in your php.ini?  Are you
using the --enable-dbmfix flag for configure when building FreeTDS?  (If
so, have you made the appropriate changes in PHP's code or applied the
patches from the FreeTDS website?)
