Reasons for Statically linking to Bekely DB?

I am compiling my own RPMS for my server, and have noted that several of
the existing RPMS of Openldap, mostly 2.0.x series, are compiled in such
a way that the Berkeley DB is statically linked to the server binary as
opposed to dynamically linked to the system DB library. Is there any
reason to do this? And will I run into problems if my system ships with
DB 4.1.25, and I compile OpenLDAP with DB version 4.2.52?
