Again I say, this should not be necessary.  The linker, ld, will 
automatically search FIRST for the import lib libgdbm.dll.a BEFORE 
searching for the static lib libgdbm.a.  The only way to change this 
behavior is to call 'ld -Bstatic' (aka 'ld -static') or 'gcc -static' to 
FORCE ld to search only for libgdbm.a.

If you were previously linking with a command similar to:

ld -o foo foo.o -lgdbm

but foo was created by linking statically against libgdbm.a -- then that 
is a bug (or installation error).  Please do NOT do wacky things like 
add ".dll" to the end of a library spec.
