Well, yes and no. Is it unbelievably stupid to believe that the people who
write the installation code talk to each other or test things?
Inside the db-4.5.20/perl/BerkeleyDB/config.in file are these lines:
# 1. Where is the file db.h?
INCLUDE = /usr/local/BerkeleyDB/include
# 2. Where is libdb?
LIB = /usr/local/BerkeleyDB/lib
They look pretty good... except for the fact that the BDB make installed
and no, it didn't bother with a symlink.
Once I'd made that link
/usr/local/BerkeleyDB -> /usr/local/BerkeleyDB.4.5
the build ran very quickly and without errors.
Grumble. Swear. Curse. Groan.
