It must be a header/library mismatch. Configure has already found a pagfno
in your library: it must have, because that part of ndbm.c is protected by

If it is of any help, this old Sparc running RH 4.2 does *not* have pagfno
and its /usr/include/ndbm.h says:

#define dbm_pagfno(a)   DBM_PAGFNO_NOT_AVAILABLE

That header has a copyright from 1993. Chances are that the library on
your system has been updated but not the header.
