You probably shouldn't remove the -DHAS_NDBH_H option, ifmail
uses it quite extensivly throughout its code. If your system didn't come
with /include/ndbm.h than you can always add it by installing an archive
called gdbm-1.7.3-ELF.gz which can be found at most sunsite mirrors.

This error was probably created by a missing #ifdef HAS_NDBH_H in
one of ifmails-txs header files. Looking at the source in message.c there
is
only one reference to idlookup and you say you remove -DHAS_NDBM_H option
from the config file (right!) than this block of source should never of
been compiled . :(
