Compile perl with GDBM_File?

    My version of Perl, 5.8.1, doesn't seem to have GDBM_File installed,
    even though GDBM_File can only be retrieved from CPAN by downloading
    perl 5.8.0 or perl 5.8.1. I believe it is not installed, though GDBM
    is installed on my machine and was available during the compile. I'm
    wondering if there are specific flags I need to pass to configure.gnu
    to make sure GDBM support is compiled in. Anyone know?

    Thanks in advance,

    I went through a lot of crap with this also. If you're using freebsd, export
    WITH_GDBM when you do a make in /usr/ports.

    Why does freebsd exclude this by default? Is it some kind of licensing
    problem?
