I'm using kubuntu 8.04.  I have libdbi0, libdbi0-dev, libdbd-mysql and
libdbd-sqlite3 (among other) packages installed.  I checkout trunk, then

./configure --prefix=/opt/gnucash2-dbi --enable-debug --enable-dbi
make all install

I can then run /opt/gnucash2-dbi/bin/gnucash and use xml, sqlite3 and
mysql.  /usr/lib/dbd contains libdbdmysql.so and libdbdsqlite3.so which
are the dbi backends I need for mysql and sqlite3 (I didn't bother with
postgresql right now).

Perhaps you need to be a bit more explicit with what you use.

BTW, when I run configure, at the end, as optional components, it lists
dbi.  Does it do that when you run it?
