I have a problem with the compilation of ifgate. When I execute "make
all", I get the following messages:

make[1]: Entering directory `/usr/src/ifmail/ifgate'
gcc version.o ifmail.o rfcmsg.o message.o mkftnhdr.o ifdbm.o batchrd.o
areas.o msgflags.o msgidbm.o falists.o attach.o ../iflib/utlib.a -o
ifmail -ldbm
/usr/i486-linux/bin/ld: cannot open -ldbm: No such file or directory
make[1]: *** [ifmail] Error 1
make[1]: Leaving directory `/usr/src/ifmail/ifgate'
make: *** [all] Error 2

I suppose, libdbm is a not in my system existing library. What can I do
to compile ifgate?

With friendly regards
