ifmail compiling problem

Post by Ulrich Cyr » Sun, 11 Sep 1994 22:23:36

I am trying to compile the ifmail fidonet-transport agent.
But I get stuck by the following compilations error messages:

bash# make
for d in iflib ifgate ifcico; do (cd $d && echo $d && make  all) || exit; done;
make[1]: Entering directory `/usr/src/ifmail/iflib'
gcc -O2 -Wall -I. -DDEBUGFILE=\""/var/log/ifmail/ifdebug"\" -DLOGFILE=\""/var/

make[1]: *** [trap.o] Error 1
make[1]: Leaving directory `/usr/src/ifmail/iflib'

1. Problems compiling ifmail

I've tried to compile the ifmail package. However, it cannot find the library
"dbm". This is correct, as I have "gdbm", not "dbm". The include file
"ndbm.h" did exist, and this is what ifgate (I think it was ifgate) used.

I tried renaming the library wanted to "gdbm". Obviously, it did find the
library, but not the functions inside it ("dbm_fetch", "dbm_close", etc).
For fun, I did "less /usr/lib/libgdbm.a" and found these names inside the

There is also shared library versions of gdbm, version 1.7.3 if I remember

Is there someone who has a clue what's going on??
