4.3.28 is installed on the system to satisfy dependencies not related
to OpenLDAP software.  I'm not trying to link OpenLDAP with 4.3.28 but
with 4.2.52.

db-4.2.52 is installed under /opt/foo and following the usual semantic
of the -I switch I do not understand how the compiler is supposed to
find the 4.3.28's db.h.

I can't see *why* the system is misconfigured :-)
