 You need to *create* PBCLONE.QLB from PBCLONE.LIB.
 Do it this way...

          `--- pbclone is a _massive_ library so you need to
               bump up the segments parameter or you will get a
               "too many segments" error message from LINK.

 You may be able to compile to QLB with a smaller segment parameter
 but I think this will work. If it doesn't, try a different number
 here. Another (and perhaps better) option would be to extract only
 the routines you want to try out to smaller libs such as PBC01.LIB,
 PBC02.LIB, PBC03.LIB etc. etc. You could skip the segments parameter
 altogether that way and keep more memory freed up in the environment.

 Good luck with it.
