Hmm. I have the same distribution and there is no target to compile a
If you are using ELF libraries, then you can make a shared library
pretty easily. Add this target after libgdbm.a in the Makefile in that
directory (I had to do a make clean first)
libgdbm.so: $(OBJS) gdbm.h
rm -f libgdbm.so
gcc -shared -o libgdbm.so $(OBJS)
I believe that you can then just copy libgdbm.so to libgdbm.so.1 and
put it where you like.
If you are using a.out, you'd best find a pre-compiled version
of libgdbm somewhere.
