You should at least fail at configure time instead of compile time for this one.  I can work around it, but requiring those to be functions is not portable.

You can try the attached patch. It is not general enough, but it should fix this particular issue. If you can think of a general solution - patches are quite welcome.

Perhaps. Unfortunately, I have no Solaris machine to verify. If you are willing to provide a patch (that takes into account a possibility of
any of the two macros always returning -1), you are quite welcome.

Incorrect, that is not so on Solaris.

This is intentional: in most implementations these macros just return -1, and therefore are completely useless. Is it not so on your OS?

The build fails with:

ndbm.c:63:4: error: #error "neither dbm_pagfno nor dbm_dirfno available"
 #  error "neither dbm_pagfno nor dbm_dirfno available"
    ^
ndbm.c:72:4: error: #error "neither dbm_pagfno nor dbm_dirfno available"
 #  error "neither dbm_pagfno nor dbm_dirfno available"
