-ldbm (or -lgdbm) is only needed if you link in mod_auth_dbm, obviously.

OTOH, it'd be a good idea, I think, were the intructions to indicate
that editing Configuration and running Configure are the required
first steps.  Get even the ones who don't want to think about the
modules used to that procedure, in case they get brave. :)
