I realize this is probably not the most flashy issue, but, if possible, I
would really like an answer to this question. I compiled BerkeleyDB 4.4.20
with the following in

INCLUDE = /usr/local/include/db44
LIB = /usr/local/lib    # also tried /usr/local/lib/db44 directly
DBNAME = -ldb-4.4

# end of file

I have done this upgrade path for BerkeleyDB and Perl several times; from
1.85 -> 4.1 -> 4.2, and now -> 4.4.20. It has always worked well. Even now
it compiles just fine. It just isn't stable anymore.

If someone out there has an idea, I'd really like to know.
