Not sure if this belongs on this list, but seemed like it was worth 
passing along.

I just successfully built the Sybase module (with only a simple change 
to setup.py shown below) against a current build of python 2.3 on Mac 
OS X 10.2.3 with the Sybase ASE v12.5.  All the tests listed in section 
1.3 of the documentation passed and so far it seems to work great.

Only change I made was to insert the following at line 32 of setup.py 
(basically duplicating the logic from the 'nt' section)

         if os.environ.has_key('SYBASE_OCS'):
             ocs = os.environ['SYBASE_OCS']
             sybase = os.path.join(sybase, ocs)

I haven't tried building against the version of python that ships with 
Jaguar, but if anyone is interested let me know and I'll try it with a 
fresh 10.2 install.

To everyone who made this work - thank you!!
