 But it's working fine after I removed $(GDALLIBS) from the Makefile.

 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.

 Ah, ok. Reading around a bit (documentation and previous discussions), it
 seems that the dbf driver is supposed to use !Shapelib instead of GDAL. I
 removed $(GDALLIBS) from the Makefile in r39594 (it's not the first time
 that is done), works for me, please test.
