I guess it really is buggy, then. For the last two weeks that
autoconf test has simply failed and then moved on; it's never stopped
the configuration script. Here's an excerpt:

checking for Berkeley DB 3.1.14 or newer... no
checking how to run the C preprocessor... gcc -E
checking for ANSI C header files... yes

And the config.log looks like:

configure:1814: checking for Berkeley DB 3.1.14 or newer
configure:1855: gcc -o conftest -g -O2 conftest.c -ldb 1>&5
/usr/libexec/elf/ld: cannot find -ldb
