        Thanks for the tip. I installed the BerkeleyDB module (supposed to be
the thing for berkeley db v. 2+), started making what looked like
reasonable changes in the script and on my first pass got the following

Argument "BerkeleyDB" isn't numeric in entersub at
/usr/local/lib/perl5/site_perl/ line 187.
Can't locate auto/BerkeleyDB/ in @INC (@INC contains:
/usr/local/lib/perl5/sun4-solaris/5.00404 /usr/local/lib/perl5
/usr/local/lib/perl5/site_perl .) at ./ line 31

        This kind of thing is frankly beyond my current perl ability, but I
will slog through it till the boss decides that something else has
higher priority. :) Any comments or suggestions welcome.
