configure doesn't find Berkeley DB

during the compilation (Gideon, CVS today) I once wondered what Berkeley DB 
was, downloaded and installed it in /usr/local/BerkeleyDB.4.1 . Unfortunately 
configure doesn't find it. If I invoke

./configure --prefix=$KDEDIR 
--with-extra-libs=/usr/local/BerkeleyDB.4.1/lib --config-cache

it says
checking for Berkeley DB >= 3... configure: error: no - please install 
Berkeley DB >= 3

Hmmm .... I toyed a little with the configure script, inserted 
#include "/usr/local/BerkeleyDB.4.1/include/db.h"
in line 33689 - it didn't help.

Any ideas? Thanks already.
