As I just mentioned in a follow up sent to jhi and CCed to you
I think it has to do with MYEXTLIB missing from
and that may be due to the missing subdirs:: rule from

I'll try to include both my ext/SDBM_File/Descrip.mms as well
as my ext/SDBM_File/sdbm/Descrip.mms but please understand
that including them as attachements (likely base64 encoded) is
the easiest way for me to send them to you.

Here is my ext/SDBM_File/descrip.mms (packed with file name sdbm_file.mms):

(See attached file: sdbm_file.mms)

and here is the ext/SDBM_File/sdbm/descrip.mms (packed with file name
note the absence of an assignment for the MYEXTLIB macro:

(See attached file: descrip.mms)

I hope that helps.  And thanks for looking into it.

Peter, I need to see your ext/SDBM_File/Descrip.mms in order to have any
chance of diagnosing this.
