I tried this, and I still get the same error message. I am using 
BerkeleyDB too. I config.log I see the error:

/usr/bin/ld: cannot find -lpthreads
configure: failed program was:
#line 8804 "configure"
#include "confdefs.h"
/* pthread test headers */
#include <pthread.h>

This error (or ones very similar) shows up several times at the end of the 
log. However, /usr/lib/libpthread.a does exist. I have installed pth 1.4.0
