libgdbmg1-dev (1.7.3-24): conflict with glibc-pre2.1

Package: gdbm
Version: 1.7.3-24

There is a conflict between gdbm & glibc 2.1 about libndbm.{a,so} links: both
packages provide them.
I propose to remove those in the gdbm-dev package.
If anyone needs to compile a program with ndbm emulation from the gdbm
package, they should explicitly link with -lgdbm.  Anyway, they already have to
replace the ndbm.h include by gdbm-ndbm.h, so another fix is not a pain (BTW,
amd, for instance, works already like that).
Do you agree ?

To implement this scheme, I added, in debian/rules, a NO_NDBM flag enabled when
the current build arch appears in GLIBC21_ARCHS.  There are currently two archs
built upon glibc2.1: sparc & powerpc.
