You maybe missing the libgdbm library which usually resides in /lib or
/usr/lib directory under linux.

Try an see if you can find the lib:
~# find / -name libgdbm.*

If it's there, but in another direcory other than specified in the CONFIG

(or is it the Makefile) then you should edit the file so it points to the
directory or you could make a synbolic link to it.

Good luck
