i'm using /usr/ports/databases/db3-latest.

it still uses libdb3.*

and according to freebsd's cvsweb, it hasn't been changed since i last
updated ports, so it seems to still be a problem.

actually, now that i've poked around a bit, it seems that the db3 port
installs a libdb.so, but the db3-latest does not. since we use
3.3.11, we'll need to use db3-latest, so we need to link against libdb3.

(or someone could pester a freebsd ports committer into changing the
db3-latest port. i would give it a shot, but all the committers i
know are src guys who tend to stay out of ports. personally though,
it seems more consistent with the rest of the ports tree to have it as
libdb3, since there does exist several other ports of berkeley db that
try to put things in /usr/local/lib, and it wouldn't be good to have
them overwriting each other.)
