BUG REPORT: wml-1.7.4 and debian/potato


due to an update of my web server I encounter the following problems
"make"ing wml.

I don't want to use the deb package because I want to do test several
changes in the source.

I get the following error messages:

wml-1.7.4/wml_backend/p3_eperl$ make
cc -rdynamic -L/usr/local/lib -L/usr/lib/perl5/5.005/i386-linux/CORE  -o
eperl eperl_main.o eperl_perl5.o eperl_parse.o eperl_pp.o eperl_sys.o
eperl_http.o eperl_getopt.o eperl_debug.o eperl_config.o eperl_version.o
eperl_readme.o eperl_license.o eperl_logo.o eperl_powered.o
/usr/lib/perl5/5.005/i386-linux/auto/DynaLoader/DynaLoader.a -lperl -lnsl
-lndbm -lgdbm -ldbm -ldb -ldl -lm -lc -lposix -lcrypt 
/usr/bin/ld: cannot find -lgdbm
collect2: ld returned 1 exit status
make: *** [eperl] Error 1

but libgdbm exists:

$ ldconfig -v | grep libgdbm
	libgdbm.so.2 (libc6) => /usr/lib/libgdbm.so.2
	libgdbm.so.1 (libc6) => /usr/lib/libgdbm.so.1

But if you do:

wml-1.7.4$ make

The procedure doesn't stop because of this error, therefore it wasn't easy
to find it. Furthermore the ""$(MAKE) install prefix=$$root"" in
wml_test/Makefile fails due the absence of eperl, but it isn't shown as
failure (the installation process seems correct) - as result you get lots

wml-1.7.4$ make test

[...] Can't locate File/PathConvert.pm in @INC [...]

because this file (and other wml_common stuff) has never been copied to
the TEST.root directory.

I am neither root on this machine nor a specialist on debian systems (I
got wml working on RedHat and older debian systems without such
problems) - so please help me.
