I tried to build several packages using your gdbm package, including SQLite and TDB - they all segfault
on data returned from libgdbm.dll. Do you have an idea what's the problem? I rebuild it myself and don't
expereince the problems. I also minimized patches and added suport for file locking. So, unless you
object, I'll release new version.

    Be free to release new version. I think it is the same
    problem we had with previous versions of other packages
    which I built with the buggy ld linker under Win95 some time
    ago. I personally never extensively tested the package. And
    as I understood your comment correctly you just rebuilt it
    to fix the segfaults this is a good explanation. If so --
    you can close this bug...

    Well, I also added patch from the net to support locking which was made rather clean, which together with
    crosscompiling allowed to reduce size of patch to couple of Ks. New package released.
