 $(GDALLIBS) but not in grass6.x?

 > Sure, but I guess there is a reason for the new presence of $(GDALLIBS)
 for the dbf driver? It seems it was added by Glynn in r38906. But it's
 working fine after I removed $(GDALLIBS) from the Makefile.

 r38906 was a scripted change which matched each program with the libraries
 which exported the symbols which were imported by the program. In the case
 of the DBF driver, the program imports the various DBF* symbols, GDAL
 exports these symbols, therefore $(GDALLIBS) was added to the Makefile.

 The process didn't handle the case where the imported symbols are exported
 by multiple libraries (in this case, GDAL and !ShapeLib). AFAICT, the DBF
 driver is the only program which uses !ShapeLib.
