First, you'd be better off to include -HAS_NDBM_H in the compiler options
since libdbm uses an older database structure. Most linux distribtutions
with libgdbm.* in either /lib or /usr/lib. Have you tried to find the
~$ find -name libgdbm.*

The compiler error occurred when ifmail was being assemble not ifgate.
If you don't have the lib then get it from the net. Most sunsite mirrors
it gdbm-2.2.0.tar.gz
