Although, it has to be said that none of these file-moving hacks work
unless you've got root access on the machine.

I wonder if there's an alternative fix, where the db libraries get
installed as libdb4.so etc, and all the -ldb entries in subversion's
makefiles are replaced by -ldb4 before building. This would surely
prevent libdb-3.*.so being picked up at link time. (I guess care is
still needed with the db.h include file, though I got the impression
that installing it to appear as <db4/db.h> would do the trick.) I might
give this a go.
