ifmail/ndbm compile problem

   I've been trying to compile the FidoNet package ifmail.  Ifmail uses
ndbm for its database routines and I have gdbm installed in my 1.3 setup
which I believe satisfies the ndbm requirements (but me knowing little C
and even less about *dbm makes me real shaky:-).

   When I try to compile ifmail I get the following error message:

message.o: In function `putmessage':
message.o(.text+0x240d): undefined reference to `idlookup'
make[1]: *** [ifmail] Error 1
make: *** [all] Error 2

   I have no idea what the problem is (other than if can't find idlookup)
but folks using RedHat tell me that ifmail compiles "out of the box" for
them.  Does anyone knowing more about *dbm than I (which should include
just about everyone:-) know what my problem might be?  If so, I'd greatly
appreciate any details; thanks.
