Did you add /usr/local/BerkeleyDB.4.2/lib to /etc/ld.so.config and run
ldconfig? I found this to be necessary on Red Hat 9.1 with db-4.1

Are you using the apr/apu that comes with the subversion distribution?
When building apr-util, you can pass --with-dbm=db42 to force it to use
only the db-4.2 api. If configure fails saying it can't find Berkeley
db, then you know something is wrong with your db install.

If you need more info on how I got it to stop see db-4.1, I can email
you my exact configure steps off-list.
