Hi Julian,
here is config.log: ... at first it said 
"can't find -ldb" but a line in /etc/ and a ldconfig run fixed 
that. The important part starts in line 1704.
If I leave "#include <db.h>" in configure:33689 it doesn't find db.h, if I put 
"#include "/usr/local/BerkeleyDB.4.1/include/db.h"" it says "In function `int 
main()': cannot convert `DBTYPE' to `const char*' in argument passing". Same 
if I put the test program into an extra file and try to compile that.

Any further ideas? Thanks ...
