Yep --- it's an older version. That would explain why the newer DB
port gets installed under "db3"; I'll bet /usr/include/db.h is version
2 or something.

I wonder what the name of the library you're supposed to link against
is. The configure script should surely link against it, and use
db_version to recognize that it's too old.

Do you have documentation for it somewhere? `man -k database'?
