The configure script isn't coded to support that particular naming
scheme. It currently tries -ldb41, -ldb-41, -ldb4, -ldb-4, -ldb.
I've committed a change to HEAD to check for -ldb-4.1 as well (as
well as a couple of other likely variants).

Well, you could link libdb41.so (and friends) to libdb-4.1.so (and friends).

Likely it tries -ldb-4.1 (or one of the other variants which refer to
libdb-4.1.so). Or just install Berkeley DB in a separate directory
and make sure your environment is such that headers and libraries
in this separate directory are found before those you have in other

We believe setting CPPFLAGS and LDFLAGS (and other environment variables)
are the appropriate mechanisms for controlling the include and library paths.
