No, no, it seems the binary is old!!!!
$ which asy
$ asy --version
Asymptote version 2.02 [(C) 2004 Andy Hammerlindl, John C. Bowman, Tom Prince]

Checking wiht strace I see that nothing but the program and some shlibs
are opened.

The asy bin is old I believe!!!!!

The moment at which two people approaching from opposite ends of a
long passageway, recognise each other and immediately pretend they
haven't. This is to avoid the ghastly embarrassment of having to
continue recognising each other the whole length of the corridor.
