Thank you both (Nikola and Ko) for your answers.

I did run the perl Makefile.PL.

I'm not sure how to check to see which version of BDB perl uses so I
downloaded and installed the latest version from I no longer
get the error but, now it just returns me to the prompt. Say I run:

cyradm --user admin --server localhost


cyradm --user admin --server localhost --auth login

back to a prompt I go. Curious....

I saw in a previous thread where Ken appeared to have the same problem
but, didn't really understand what he did to fix it. 

Does anyone have some better suggestions please let me know.
