Have you tried compiling sybperl with the redhat 8.0 version of perl?  I am
using redhat 7.3 and my own perl (5.8.0), which was compiled with ldb by
default, and have not encountered any problems (at least to my knowledge).  
$ /opt/perl -V:libs
libs='-lnsl -lgdbm -ldb -ldl -lm -lc -lcrypt -lutil';

John,

I agree this is an option, albeit one that requires som work to 
get all the other Perl dependencies to be happy

# rpm -e perl 2>&1 |wc -l
    723

But if you read my original posting you will see that even if I 
try to run a clean pristine source tree, I cannot get it to 
compile without ldb. I feel like a right idiot. Bah.

Could you perhaps give me some pointers? Go back to an older Perl 
maybe?
