*BUT* that wouldn't be SunOS-4.1.1's ndbm.h.  It would have to be the
4.4bsd db(3) emulation of nbdm.h.

Or find a copy of the original 4.1.1 ndbm.h (and other relevant files)
and replace the "local" versions with the stock ones.  Then go hunt down
and scream at the person who did this.  Gratuitous local stuff like this
should definitely be kept in a separate directory, esp. when it's not
quite compatible, and not necessary.  It should be explicitly accessed
with -L and -I compiler options!

Also, zmailer should be fixed *not* to use the private internal function
dbm_pagfno() call so that it will be portable to 4.4bsd.
