    This line:
    ld: fatal: library -ldb: not found
    tells me that your system (not just perl) is missing, typically this comes with glibc/libc though I've seen it as a separate package for some distributions of Linux. Check your /usr/lib and /usr/local/lib for this library, and if not found, you should make sure it is installed for your particular platform.

      Thanks for your quick response, I'm running solaris 2.6 with gcc compiler and perl 5.005_03 sun4-colaris. I could not find this lib file anywhere on any of the three solaris box's I have.
