In PPM unlike CPAN you need to specify the distribution name not the
module name in the install command.
Often the distribution name is the same as the module name with '::'
replaced by '-' so if you type something that looks like a module name
then PPM will try that but this is only a heuristic that works occasionally.
Looking on http://search.cpan.org/ I found that the distribution that
contains Sybase::DBlib is sybperl.
I don't know if its on the ActiveState's PD repository.
