Description Mikhail Zabaluev 2001-06-20 08:18:31 UTC
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
package.

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

Comment 1 Jindrich Novy 2006-02-15 10:15:13 UTC
The problem no more exist since db4.
