i tried this, and it doesn't work

at the end of the line that looks like this right? :
        $(CC) -o ../bin/circle $(PROFILE) $(OBJFILES) -lm
i put   -ldbmalloc   -(L)dbmalloc
but it says
ld: cannot open -ldbmalloc: No such file or directory
i tried calling it
but that didn't work.

the libdbmalloc.a file is in my  /src directory, should i put it somewhere

thnx for your help so far.
