This would generally mean that your libdb-4.2.so file is linked
against a library that isn't in your LD_LIBRARY_PATH prior to running
configure for OpenLDAP, so that compiles against that BDB file fail.
Actually, there's something deeper wrong here; libdb-4.2.so should not
have any dependencies on any pthread_* functions. This BDB library has
not been built correctly.
Hm, my libdb.a has references to pthread_*. I didn't think that was
surprising, since there's a lot of code in there trying to deal with
thread safety. (But I've wondered how much potential there is for
trouble, with OpenLDAP and who knows which of its dependency libraries
all auto-configuring their own thread locking. DB's autoconfig sets
HAVE_MUTEX_PTHREADS on Redhat RHE3, but HAVE_MUTEX_X86_GCC_ASSEMBLY
on Redhat 7.3, etc.)
I haven't had a Tru64 host to deploy since it was called DEC/OSF, but
in those days I would have used -rpath when linking the application,
to specify the location(s) of any non-standard run-time libraries.
And like many platforms it may require special flags and libraries for
the reentrancy issues that come up with threads.
