It sounds like the config/cf files aren't properly setup.
What does your config/cf/NetBSD.cf file look like?
It should contain these lines at least to solve your problem:
#define DBMLibrary /**/
#define HasNdbm YES
#define HasLibCrypt YES
These will negate the -ldbm (its builtin to libc).
HasLibCrypt does what it says too.
Of course after checking on these you'll need to do a "make Makefiles" to
update all the makefiles in the source tree.
