Perl and Berkeley db

Hi all,

I have a problem installing Perl (5.8.4). I get the message below but I'm sure that Berkeley db is installed (4.2.52).

I was told that using ndbm or gdbm can cause problems but I don't even have them.

Do you have idea what the problem can be? (I was using a guide during perl's installing but seems to be not enough )


<db.h> found.

Checking Berkeley DB version ...
/tmp/cc45UZXx.o(.text+0x1e): In function `main':
: undefined reference to `db_version'
collect2: ld returned 1 exit status
I can't use Berkeley DB with your <db.h>. I'll disable Berkeley DB.

libs = -lnsl -lm -lc -lcrypt -lutil
