configure only knows your system to the extent its exposed
by your environment.  configure as a many expectations of
that environment.  One of them is that for every library,
the header found will match the latest revision of that
library available in the environment.   A properly
configured system is one which, among other things, meets
this expectation.

Your environment is configured in that the latest Berkeley
DB library is from 4.3 but the header is from 4.2.  I
consider this an improper environment.  A 4.3 header
should have been provided to go along with the latest
Berkeley DB library available in the environment.

As you intended configure to use 4.2, presently you have
to adjust your environment to force configure's detection
of 4.3 to be negative as I previously advised.
