The FreeBSD port of BDB does this. You can take a look at
http://www.freebsd.org/cgi/cvsweb.cgi/ports/databases/db41 for more
information. The Makefile has some configure options you may want to use
and the 'files' subdirectory contains a few patches you could adapt to
your setup that pick an appropriate library name.
