Resending as original seems to have been lost.

Heres some updates for a clean build on SCO OpenServer5.0.5

Problems :
  test fails - DB_File cannot resolve fsync
  if GDBM configured/detected, test fails - GDBM cannot resolve fsync

Fix DB_File​:
  add hints file ext/DB_File/hints/

# osr5 needs to explicitly link against libc to pull in some static symbols
$self->{LIBS} = ['-ldb -lc'] if $Config{'osvers'} =~ '3\.2v5\.0\..' ;

Fix GDBM​:

Add hints ext/GDBM/hints/

# SCO OSR5 needs to link with again to have C<fsync> defined
$self->{LIBS} = ['-lgdbm -lc'];
