You have to get yourself a door before you can open it...

You have to install GDBM_file separately. It is a separate piece of package
if you use Debian or RedHut (and any other distro that uses some kind of
packages). When you have GDBM installed, and you compile Perl, you'll get it
to support GDBM.

It's just to compile as Kevin suggested: Configure -de, make test etc..
