-ldb?  Berkeley DB?  Swish doesn't use Berekely DB by default, so I don't
understand why you would need that.  -lm is already specified in the Makefile.

I think you need to specify which CGI program you are using.  There's a
bunch of pointers to CGI script on the swish-e site, and also there's a lot
of other CGI scripts in various script archives around the net.  Can
probably offer some help with most CGI scripts, but you might also consider
contacting the script's author.
