You may be able to fix this error by grabbing the *previous* version of the
Linux Sybase libs and copying its lib/libblk.a to the lib/ directory of the
*new* libs. For some reason, libblk.a is not included in the new package,
but the older one has worked fine for me. On the other hand, I didn't run
into this error compiling sybperl 2.09, so something else may be going on
too. (FWIW, I did get the same error when compiling sqsh 1.6 and fixed it by
copying the relevant file.)

Hope this helps,


P.S. I've made the file available at
in case you don't feel like downloading the entire archive (and in case you
trust me ;-).
