> readline needs ncurses. If you were linking dynamically, readline would know this. Linking statically, as you are doing, it doesn't know.

thanx for the advice.

i put -lncurses at LIBTERMCAP in configs/Makeconf.linux, because
my ncurses emulate termcap.  and it went through.

however, it stoped at the line of including gdbm.h in

it was obvious that i didn't have compiled
under glibc-2.1 environment, because i thought glibc 
already have dbm library (ndbm?).

anyway, my question is:
why does coda still use gdbm even under glibc?
it seems to me that development of gdbm is dead a while
ago.  and that was the reason coda dropped libc5, wasn't it?

ps. sorry for newbee questions
