Cobol Complier

Has anyone setup a cobol compiler? I found some on sourceforge but missing libraries. The program I am trying is called open-cobol 0.23. For example:

configure: error: libdb1 is required

Any ideas or a better program will help, thanks.

l would guess its looking for the Berkeley database routines probably db1. I beleive the latest version is db3. Try locating the package on rpmfind.
