You are trying to access the "gdbm_errno" variable from the gdbm 
library.  However, cyggdbm.dll does not export that variable -- because 
it is private and you're not supposed to access it directly from client 
code (Bad OpenLDAP.  No cookie.)

Since the linker can't find gdbm_errno in the importlib for gdbm 
(because the import lib only contains those symbols that are properly 
exported by the dll), the linker tries to do the 'auto-import' thing.

But, the current gdbm package was built long before auto-import support 
was added to ld, so cyggdbm.dll doesn't contain any of the auto-import 
thunks (_nm_*).  So that fails, too.

Solution: fix OpenLDAP to call the gdbm error reporting *function* and 
NOT to access the gdbm_error *variable* directly.
