Description Mikhail Zabaluev 2001-06-20 04:18:31 EDT
Description of Problem:

ndbm.h resides in /usr/include/db1 and belongs to the db1-devel package,
whereas libndbm.so is a symlink to libdb2.so and belongs to the db2-devel

This induces unnecessary build dependencies (and potential problems)
for perl and other sources that include ndbm.h and link against -lndbm.

The problem no more exist since db4.
