i brought this up on the neon list a while back, and the response was
'set CPPFLAGS and LDFLAGS'. i guess the neon people (meaning joe ;-)
don't feel it should look in /usr/local for expat.

this is a known problem with our configure. if you have the needed
skill with autoconf, we'd welcome a patch that teaches it how to
correctly find db4 on freebsd. currently, the freebsd port works
around this with an ugly hack (running perl -pi -e 's/ldb/ldb4/' on
the configure script before running it), and i'd love to get rid of
that, but haven't found the time to figure out how to fix it.
