perl4.003 and ndbm

I just compiled perl 4.003 on an AT&T 3b1. Not the world's biggest
machine, but it does the job. It failed on test, op/dbm.t.
Here's what I get when I run ./perl t/op/dbm.t.
Out of memory!
>From looking at t/op/dbm.t, it does not appear that the test should use
that much memory. Does this test really use that much memory,
or is something wrong?
Do I need to do anything special when compiling perl on a 3b1?
Now the 3b1 does not come with -lndbm, but that didn't stop me.
I just grabbed Ozan Yigit's sdbm package, and used that.
I compiled most of perl with gcc, (falling back to cc for eval.c and toke.c).
Gcc tends to run out of virtual memory, (there's that 2.5Meg limit again).
I did not use perl's malloc, (should I have?)
And I used the shared libraries, (maybe I should not have).
