With these patches I tried to build on 4.9/alpha.  The build thinks its
completed successfully, but I really don't think it has.

The warning:


is given throughout the build (this is specific to 4.x, no such problem
with the compiler for 5.x/alpha).

The build finishes with:

Full build of Release 6.3 of the X Window System complete.

Which to me looks like its not correctly figuring out that it failed.  I
believe the dbm functions are in libc.

I'll send you the full output separately.
