That seemed to be it. Unfortunately Berkeley DB is installed on
Digital Unix 4.0B by default. It would appear to be part of the BASE
installation. I assume this is new with 4.0B, because I didn't run into
this under Digital Unix 4.0A.
Also, now I can't seem to build it for dynamic loading without setting
LD_LIBRARY_PATH. :( I assume this has something to do with the compiler
and linker being COMPLETELY replaced between 4.0A and 4.0B.
