Don't panic. Let's see what cgf has to say about the issue, esp. with regards to cygwin exporting/not-exporting the db symbols in the future.

Read the newlib mailing list.

I did. Other than your two messages yesterday, I can't find any discussion of this issue at all. It appears that the search/ directory and all of its contents and the two problematic header files (a) sprang fully formed from the head of 'fitzsim at sources dot redhat dot com' (Tom Fitzsimmons), (b) were applied directly to CVS without any discussion.

From your second message on that list:

Ok.  I can see that it is a recent addition and that there appears to be
an object file in newlib to support it.  I wonder if this should be
system specific, though.  Cygwin can't be the only newlib-using "OS"
which already has a ndbm implementation, can it?

It appears that you think the db/ndbm header files from newlib *should* be sequestered, and are trying to start the debate on that list -- a debate which should have occurred PRIOR to 6/20's checkin, IMO.

The subtle hint: this discussion belongs on the newlib list. Got it.
