ld doesn't look for libgdbm.so.x but it looks for libgdbm.so (or
libgdbm.a).  This is the only chance to tell the linker, which library
(there are two choices above) should be used.

Debian places this link (libgdbm.so pointing to libgdbm.so.1.7.3) in a
package named libgdbmg1-dev.  This package also includes the static
library, the man pages and the include files.

So I think, that your problem is, that you forgot to install the
libgdbmg1-dev package.
