Thanks for responding, Michael. You are indeed correct, on RHL 
7.3 this is the case. I get the same result. But this is 
unfortunately *not* the case for RHL 8.0, which shows this:

perl -V:libs
libs='-lnsl -lgdbm -ldb -ldl -lm -lpthread -lc -lcrypt -lutil';

So Red Hat has changed something, but I can't find out how to 
change it back.

The problem is that the machine on which Sybperl needs to run has 
been upgraded from RHL 6.2 to 8.0, and I cannot degrade it again. 
Perhaps the solution is to remove all the Perl rpms and install 
the ones for 7.3. I don't much fancy this option, though. Perl is 
so integrated into the distro that something's bound to break.

As I said, I've tried a lot of things and spent a few days 
getting this up and running, so I'm starting to get a bit 
desperate. The box needs to go back into production.

Any thoughts anyone?
