If you remember what that was, I would like to know it.

From the database manager library. I don't know what that is called on
SGI. On Solaris it is built into libc and Linux has several more or less
compatible libraries.

If SGI doesn't supply the library, GDBM from the FSF (Gnu) is fine.

Another option is to comment out everything about the database support in
topdir.mk and recompile. Then there won't be any database support, of
course, but you probably won't miss it.
