I don't know much about ASIQ, but timeouts are handled in OpenClient
(though IIRC the default is to not have a timeout).

No - the problem here is that your OpenClient installation is missing
the blk library (libblk.a, usually), which is needed for sybperl to
build properly.

You should contact Sybase to obtain that library. However if you are
only using the Sybase::DBlib side of things you should be able to
proceed and use the new version as it doesn't rely on the libblk.a
