It sounds like the config/cf files aren't properly setup.

What does your config/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.
