The above message contained the following:

What's "sarge OS".  What is the output from the command "uname -a" on
that system?

Are you really using the DBFILE action in a pqact(1) configuration
file?  That technology is so old I'm surprised anyone's using it.  Are
there subsequent programs that are designed to use the resulting gdbm(3)
files or are they just being created but nothing uses them?

I wonder if the configure(1) script decided that the gdbm(3) library
shouldn't be used on that system.  What is the value of the USE_GDBM
macro in the file $LDMHOME/include/config/ldmconfig.h?

What's "woody OS"?  What is the output from the command "uname -a" on
that system?

It would appear that the LDM installations on the two systems aren't
identical.  Should they be?  I don't have enough information to decide.

Try comparing the files $LDMHOME/src/configure.log on the two systems.
Do they show any differences between the executions of the two
configure(1) scripts?
