84You don't have an ELF gcc. I will use dld if possible. If you are

86should probably upgrade. If you are forced to use 3.2.4, you should

105 # In addition, on some systems there is a problem with perl and NDBM
106 # which causes AnyDBM and NDBM_File to lock up. This is evidenced
107 # in the tests as AnyDBM just freezing. Apparently, this only
108 # happens on a.out systems, so we disable NDBM for all a.out linux
109 # systems. If someone can suggest a more robust test
110 # that would be appreciated.

116 # I tried compiling with DBM support and sure enough things locked up
117 # just as advertised. Checking into it, I found that the lockup was
118 # during the call to dbm_open. Not *in* dbm_open -- but between the call
119 # to and the jump into.
120 #
121 # To make a long story short, making sure that the *.a and *.sa pairs of
122 # /usr/lib/lib{m,db,gdbm}.{a,sa}
123 # were perfectly in sync took care of it.

149Upgrading to a recent version (1.14.4 or later) should fix the problem.
