Description of problem:
perl-5.6.1-34.99.6.src.rpm does not finish compiling in RH7.3.
All build dependencies are installed perl test fails in ndbm and anydbm test.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. rpm --rebuild perl-5.6.1-34.99.6.src.rpm
2. whatch for errors

Actual Results:  the package does not compile

Expected Results:  the perl package should compile and finish up in a .386.rpm
rpm package

Additional info:

It seems that db1 and db1-devel are a requeriment for buildint, but they are not
listed in .spec file.

I modified the perl.spec file like this:
%if %{build_rawhide}
%define threading  1

to allow threads in perl
