O.K, thanks to your help, I the whole SBDM and DB_File issue is clear now.
I contacted my ISP's Webmaster and he insists that DB_File is installed, but
that there are several versions of Perl on the IBM RS/6000 AIX server.  Here
is the output of the find.

<root@winery:/home/root> find /usr -name DB*

I checked all the Perlfect  .PL programs and they are set to
#!/usr/local/bin/perl5 and the is still not finding DB_File (see
the out put form my original message in this thread).

NEXT, I did a PERL5 Verify to find out what order Perl is looking at things.
Here is the output.  Given all of this, does anyone have any recommendations
for my next step?

$ perl5 -V
