Not being familiar with Red Hat, I don't know where you'd find gdbm-ndbm.h,
but on the Debian systems I've worked on, it's in the libgdbmg1-dev package,
so maybe it would be something similar under Red Hat.

Here is the package description:

	"GNU dbm database routines (development files) [libc6 version]
	GNU dbm ('gdbm') is a library of database functions that use
	extendible hashing and works similarly to the standard UNIX 'dbm'

glibc2 as libdb included in it as the dbm replacement. The file gdbm-ndbm.h
is for using the traditional Unix dbm interface to the gdbm library. I don't
know why they didn't call it ndbm.h or provide a link, so that programs need
not be modified to work.
