This document is wrong. Feel free to report bug at php. It's true for
sybase_ct extension, but not for mssql based function. Anyway I thought that
Steve aliased sybase_* to mssql_* when he made this transition in Debian. I
wonder why he hasn't do it.

Please don't be hysterical. Attached patch should do the trick. For now you
can just download php sources, go to ext/mssql, apply patch, install
php5-dev, run phpize && configure && make && make install. Full recompile of
php is not neccessary.

BIG WARNING: I didn't test the patch. Use at own risk, I don't even now if
it compiles (it should, but who knows).
