Well,

you solution is working, but wrong one. The real reason why sybase module
installs mssql.so is they are really (almost) the same - they use same
library to access database. With one small exception - mssql module is
better maintained and provides pdo version, and works better in some cases.
That was reason to do the switch in Debian.

I am not really sure why Steve didn't provide aliases from sybase to mssql
function, but my patch should ensure it. I'll commit it into Debian svn and
it will propage into next version of Ubuntu as well.

Ondrej.
