I have solved this by upgrading to gcc 3.4.3 and db 4.3.7

I then needed various bits of 
C<env LD_LIBRARY_PATH= > and 
C<-Dlddlflags=-Wl,--rpath\ -Wl,/opt/db/lib>

But I now have recompiled working versions of perl-5.8.6 
and perl-current.

This is a bug report for perl from Robin.Barker@npl.co.uk,
generated with the help of perlbug 1.35 running under perl v5.8.6.

-----------------------------------------------------------------
[Please enter your report here]

I recently "upgraded" gcc from 3.3 to 3.3.2 - now DB_File does not work.

5 tests fail in the test suite - all involving DB_File
ext/DB_File/t/db-btree.t
ext/DB_File/t/db-hash.t
ext/DB_File/t/db-recno.t
lib/Memoize/t/errors.t
lib/Memoize/t/tie.t
 
More simply:
% ./perl -Ilib -MDB_File -e1
Segmentation fault

perl-5.8.6 compiled and passed all tests with gcc 3.3
