Non of the DBM functions are available, although the DBA functions are.  The GDBM library is installed fine.

./configure' '--with-mysql=/usr/local/mysql' '--with-apxs=/usr/local/apache-1.3.14/bin/apxs' '--with-xml' '--with-gdbm'   (also tried with --with-gdbm=/usr/local/lib)

------------ PHP.INI -----------


; About this file ;
; This file controls many aspects of PHP's behavior.  In order for PHP to
; read it, it must be named 'php.ini'.  PHP looks for it in the current
; working directory, in the path designated by the environment variable
; PHPRC, and in the path that was defined in compile time (in that order).
; Under Windows, the compile-time path is the Windows directory.  The
; path in which the php.ini file is looked for can be overriden using
; the -c argument in command line mode.
; The syntax of the file is extremely simple.  Whitespace and Lines
; beginning with a semicolon are silently ignored (as you probably guessed).
; Section headers (e.g. [Foo]) are also silently ignored, even though
; they might mean something in the future.
; Directives are specified using the following syntax:
; directive = value
; Directive names are *case sensitive* - foo=bar is different from FOO=bar.
; The value can be a string, a number, a PHP constant (e.g. E_ALL or M_PI), one
; of the INI constants (On, Off, True, False, Yes, No and None) or an expression
; (e.g. E_ALL & ~E_NOTICE), or a quoted string ("foo").
; Expressions in the INI file are limited to bitwise operators and parentheses:
; |                             bitwise OR
; &                             bitwise AND
; ~                             bitwise NOT
; !                             boolean NOT
; Boolean flags can be turned on using the values 1, On, True or Yes.
; They can be turned off using the values 0, Off, False or No.
; An empty string can be denoted by simply not writing anything after the equal
; sign, or by using the None keyword:
;   foo =                       ; sets foo to an empty string
;       foo = none              ; sets foo to an empty string
;       foo = "none"    ; sets foo to the string 'none'
; If you use constants in your value, and these constants belong to a dynamically
; loaded extension (either a PHP extension or a Zend extension), you may only
; use these constants *after* the line that loads the extension.
; All the values in the php.ini-dist file correspond to the builtin
; defaults (that is, if no php.ini is used, or if you delete these lines,
; the builtin defaults will be identical).
