The Open Group's UNIX spec clearly states that there
should exist a file /usr/include/ndbm.h.  Now I understand
there's some controversey over which database to use
GNU or BSD, but a decision must be made. There must be
a <ndbm.h> file.  <db1/ndbm.h> does not make the standard.
(my pick would be the (GNU) gdbm version of ndbm.)

reviously RedHat shipped this in glibc-devel-2.0.7-29.i386.rpm; why
isn't it being shipped now in glibc-devel-2.1.1-6.i386.rpm?  This is a
lousy way to treat people who are upgrading from previous versions --
I'm sure I could go back through all of my older RH5.X disks and find
that ndbm.h was in /usr/include ... why move it now?

The GPL license shouldn't be an issue since the GNU libraries are
being delivered as part of the base operating system.
