Hi Alexander et al,

This DBM information I could not find in this release. What I did find was
that by default, it was using -O3 in it's DB compilations on AIX. I
changed that back to -O2 and my last htmerge was successfull.

At this time, having changed nothing else except adding the --debug
request of Mr. Htdig :), I am being led to believe that the -O3 to gcc was
the problem. I'll report back if I find it failing again.

Hope this helps some others too,
