Compiling perl 5.004_04 for sparc/slink

Hi there,

I'm trying to compile a copy of 5.004_04 for sparc/slink.  The catalyst
for this is that I discovered that our current 5.004 doesn't have
GDBM_file support compiled in.

I succeeded eventually in compiling it (the hitch was an already open bug,
that 5.004 doesn't compile with libc2.1-pre versions), but I've hit
another snag:

I also need the DB_File extension to work. Unfortunately, Perl won't build
the DB_File extension against Berkeley DB version 2, only Berkeley DB
version 1 - and AFAICS, we don't have a libc6 dev-package of Berkeley DB
version 1.

This is a slight mystery, since I don't see how the version currently *in*
slink got compiled, since that does have db support..

Any thoughts?
