it's too bad that there is no standard location where we can expect to
find the berkeley db libs, but honestly, i don't think subversion's
configure scripts can be expected to take into account every possible
naming convention, since they seem to vary widely. the FreeBSD port
already has to patch configure to find libdb4, just like you had to
for redhat.

in my opinion, this should be handled by the packager for that system.
the rpms should do it for redhat, the debs should do it for debian,
the ports can do it for the various BSD's.

what would be nice perhaps is an option you can pass to configure to
change the library easily, so you could just do './configure
--with-berkeley-db=/usr/local/ --berkeley-db-lib=libdb-4.0' or
something like that.
