In my oppinion it would be easier to let configure only try -ldb.  One can
then make sure libdb.so is a symbolic link to whichever library version you
intend to link with.  Same for db.h.  You could even remove libdb.so and
link againts libdb.a if you don't want slapd to depend on a specific version
of the db runtime library.  The BerkelyDB is a bit special because it is
quite sensitive to the proper matching of db.h and libdb.so.
