Heh. I think there's just some ambiguity in that error message.

I'm guessing you are reading it as:

   "The Berkeley DB which I've found in the source tree is no longer
   supported."

But I think the message really means:

   "We no longer support configuring against an in-tree copy of
   Berkeley DB."

So, just move your BDB source directory outside your Subversion build
area, or try just passing the --with-berkeley-db flag to configure.
