Okay, that is good to know. But I, personally, never did this so it must have been done by one of the ports I have installed. I just wonder which one, or rather, how one goes about discovering which one. Any ideas?

I installed the db41 but after that was done, i went into the perl subdir, fixed up config.in and ran the perl installation. I had done that some time ago for graphdefang ( it's not from ports but it needed DB_File). I would think they have the same api, but what do I know of perl ;)

looks correct to me, but I'm an engineer and my language skills (outside programming languages) aren't the greatest. ;)
thanks for the help.
