David, right you are. I verified that the current 3.2.3rc2 without gdbm does correctly recognize a shelve from another Python backed with gdbm 1.10:
  dbm.error: db type is dbm.gnu, but the module is not available
Niklas, yes, to build a Python from source on OS X with gdbm support, you will need to build and install the GNU gdbm library on your system first.  There are also third-party Python distributions for Mac OS X that optionally include gdbm support, like MacPorts.
