Mergeant uses Libgda's database adaptators (providers) to access
databases, and the FreeTDS does not offer all
the features of the more "mainstream" providers such as PostgreSQL,
MySQL or Oracle. Wtiting a database provider is not difficult but it
has to be done, and in the case of Sybase, one probably needs to have
a licence...

Also Mergeant is a work-in-progress at the moment so you may expect
some crashes...
