grip library dependency - can't resolve

can anyone help me with this compile problem? grip won't make, and i can't find what i need to satisfy the dependency. the only thread on LQ with libd1 is one where finegan mentions it once as part of some other thing, and the grip mailing list hasn't sent me the confirmation email yet for me to ask them there.

i searched my hard drive with find and locate (after an updatedb) for 'ldb1' and came up with nothing. so it looks like it's not even on my system for me to change the compile path. i'm stumped.

here's the error message:

/usr/lib/gcc-lib/i486-slackware-linux/3.3.2/../../../../i486-slackware-linux/bin/ld: cannot find -ldb1
collect2: ld returned 1 exit status
make[2]: *** [grip] Error 1
make[2]: Leaving directory `/home/sero/dload/progs/grip-3.0.7/src'
make[1]: *** [all-recursive] Error 1
make[1]: Leaving directory `/home/sero/dload/progs/grip-3.0.7'
make: *** [all-recursive-am] Error 2

many thanks!

>edit: i'm upgrading gnome now through the dropline-installer to see if that fixes it...

The db1 library is a standard library which probably *is* installed but not properly configured. Try doing a ldconfig -v | grep db1 and look at the output. If you don't get any output but do have libdb1.* files in /usr/lib you could try creating a couple of symlinks.
First ls -l /usr/lib | grep db1 to see what db1-related stuff you have there. If you have (or any other version) you can create links named what the program expects:
cd /usr/lib
ln -s
ln -s

Then run ldconfig as root and try building your app again. If it still doesn't work you probably have a pretty serious problem since libdb1 usually comes with (g)libc or gettext, both critical parts to a functional development system.
