I've been building on FreeBSD for ages, and I've had the same problem
as Fitz for quite a while. I've been building DB "inline" for eons
just to avoid the problem.

But yes, in your /etc/rc.conf, you can override the variable
${ldconfig_paths} that is normally set in /etc/defaults/rc.conf:

  ldconfig_paths="${ldconfig_paths} /usr/local/BerkeleyDB.3.3.11/lib"

This is what we did on our FreeBSD test box. Dunno how Darwin works
though. :-)
