libgdbm.so.2 is *NOT* a new version of libgdbm. The soname "libgdbm.so.2"
was choosen for the gdbm 1.7.3 last year (and distributed together with
libc-5.0.9) because the aout/ELF conversion and the now a such identified
misfeature of the ld to intelligently pick the shared library by the complete
libgdbm 1.7.3 in the debian incarnation libgdbm1-1.7.3-8 should have the
definite soname of libgdbm.so.1.

I suspect they linked it in a libc-5.0.9 environment.

If someone need this file libgdbm.so.2.0.0 with the soname "libgdbm.so.2",
