Looks like either your apache or your subversion compile found a db.h
header file with 4.1.25 in it and possibly linked with the corresponding
library but while running only finds 4.0.14 binaries.

You could always do a 'find / -name db.h -print' to round up all of the
rogue db header files, remove them (and the associated libraries), and
install the one version you want. Having multiple versions of the same
program in different system directories is almost always asking for
