Is this another canon question?
I think Sybok may get a mention during the altercation scene with Kirk and Spock.

It could be the information that Old Spock provides to Kirk as a means of convincing young Spock that he has indeed been in contact with his older self.

I don't care for Sybok either. If he appears in this film or not really is of no consequence. If he did appear I would assume it would be no more than a small glimpse or just a mention. Otherwise, he has no place at all.
I was just asking because I was watching TFF last night and thought it might be an interesting topic for discussion.
As for why I was watching TFF, I do that once in a while when I've already watched all the other Trek movies and still need more. Besides, I do like the interactions between Kirk, Spock, and Bones in that one.

How does Spock not know of Sybok?

Yep, according to an earlier edition of the Star Trek Encyclopedia, Sybok was one piece of 'apocrypha' identified by Roddenberry.

The new movie doesn't need to declare that he doesn't exist, it can just avoid mention of him. It's not like the film's gonna be a checklist for every little thing that is or isn't retained as canon in the new vision.

The concept behind Sybok is an interesting - dare I say, fascinating? - one. It could be used to good effect in a future story, if done right. I'm not saying it necessarily should be used, though.
