Wow, I've missed quite a discussion :^)

Well, I am ready to commit the first draft of popauth along with some
modifications to apop.c. I guess it might help solve your problem,
Jeff. The main idea was to make mailutils able to link against any of
four DBM systems (GDBM, Berkeley db, ndbm and dbm) by using a
transparent interface. I have tested it on my box and it seems to work
well. I'll commit it, if it is not clashing with what you are writing
