These errors appear during the linking process - they appear in lookup.o. I've checked and I DO have the ndbm.h file in the /usr/include/db1/ directory. I'm not entirely sure what else is wrong. It's the only problem that I'm having with it. :(

Do you have GDBM installed?

If you notice in the make file, the second option is -lgdbm:
  LIBS=-lintl -lgdbm -lsocket -lm -lnsl

If you have it installed, make sure that its path is in:

You may also have to run this as root to ensure ld.so.cache is current:

If you do not have it installed, you can get it at the following location:

There is probably an RPM for it as well.

I hope this helps, else someone a little more experience with ColdC
