Not really expert, but ... Yes, you can put -L switches in LIBS,
but don't. :-)

If your linker doesn't search /usr/local/lib, then I'd say you
should fix your linker configuration (maybe something's broken
in /etc/ld.so.conf?) instead of adding that path to LIBS.

Alternatively, you could add --with-berkeleydb-libs=<path> and
--with-berkeleydb-headers=<path> tests which would add the library
and include paths to LIBS and INCLUDES.
