1.  it's often much more sensible to NOT do configures/builds as root.
  Because often, root's environment isnt set up correctly. See #4, below.

2. reconfigure/recompile/install sleepycat with
   ./configure --prefix=/usr/local

3. Just use plain ./configure, and read the output to see if it picks up
   berkeley db.

this says your compile environment is completely screwed up.

As in "your PATH isnt set right, and you've probably messed up other
things on top of that.".

Lemme guess: you're normally a csh user, and you dont realize that you 
need to "export PATH" when using an sh-derivative like /sbin/sh for root.
