Please compile your Perl with GDBM support. First step is to install
the GDBM development libraries on your system.


I believe it already is compiled with GDBM support, the libraries are there as well. See output from perl -V

 ld='gcc', ldflags =' -L/usr/local/lib '
    libpth=/usr/local/lib /usr/lib /usr/ccs/lib /opt/csw/lib /usr/sfw/lib /opt/csw/bdb44/lib
    libs=-lsocket -lnsl -ldl -lm -lc -lgdbm -lcrypt -ldb
    perllibs=-lsocket -lnsl -ldl -lm -lc -lcrypt
