[ic] Need GDBM or DB_File

I have Berkeley DB 2.7.7. The only DB_File I find at CPAN is for Berkeley DB
version 1.x. Do I need to get one of the older versions of Berkeley so that
I can get that DB_File and Interchange to work properly?

In addtion to installing Berkeley db, you also need the DB_File Perl
installed. Have you checked to see if it exists? You can try something
	perl -mDB_File -e 'print "ok\n";'
which will print "ok" if Perl can find the module in its include path.
