Description Joerg Dorchain 2000-05-20 07:52:58 EDT
php as shipped uses libgdbm for db-files.
when you remove gdbm from your system and rebuild, it uses the libdb that
is part of the glibc-package, which is the appropriate lib for sharing
dbmfiles with perl and sendmail.
Simply adding --without-gdbm doesn't work (bug in php configure?)
Is there something like build-conflicts in specfiles?

I overlooked the dba_* functions. just forget it.
Although it would be nice to have ndbm the default for dbm or mark dbm_* as
