Works for me.

In my case I'm testing a package build with this configure line:

./configure --with-udpfromto --enable-developer --config-cache
--enable-strict-dependencies --without-rlm_eap_ikev2
--without-rlm_eap_tnc --without-rlm_opendirectory
--with-experimental-modules --without-rlm_redis --without-rlm_rediswho
--without-rlm_ruby --without-rlm_sql_firebird
--without-rlm_sql_unixodbc --without-rlm_sql_oracle

Othe than the ones specifically excluded, the other modules (including
rlm_dbm) was successfully built.

On a side note, what does "--with-edir" do? ./configure --help doesn't
show anything for that.
