No. configure found either ndbm.h or db1/ndbm.h. In your case it was
db1/ndbm.h header file. Look at ifdef in ~inn/authprogs/ckpasswd.c:
#if defined(HAVE_NDBM_H) || defined(HAVE_DB1_NDBM_H)
char *GetDBPass(char *name, char *file)
You can run "~inn/configure | grep dbm" to see what was found. You have
db1/ndbm.h but your linker couldn't find dbm_* functions. See dbm_open(3).
Or you can try to find dbm_*() manualy:
for i in <pathS-to-system-libraries>
   cd $i
   for j in lib*
      echo  $i/$j
      nm $j | grep dbm_open
Did you install your system properly?:)
