I added fnmatch(3) and glob(3) support to dash in order to tap
into existing libc functions rather than duplicating them.  However
at the time it turned out that both were broken which is why these
macros were added until such a time when they were fixed.

The fnmatch(3) function is now correct as far as I know but
glob(3) still seems to be broken.

In any case you may enable them with --enable-fnmatch and --enable-glob
when running configure to see their effect on dash.
