Very good!  You found your problem.  You don't have db4-devel-4.0.14-20

That didn't work because it (as default) installs it in: 
"/usr/local/BerkeleyDB.4.2/" and configure won't find it unless told where 
to look.

So, either install the 'devel' package and remove the version built from 
source, or remove the RPM and tell the configure script, and the linker 
where to find BerkeleyDB.

	./configure --with-db-dir=/usr/local/BerkeleyDB.4.2 \
	--with-extra-includes=/usr/local/BerkeleyDB.4.2/include \

You might or might not need the second and third ones depending on what 
configure is doing.

Then [as root], add this to: "":


and execute:
