Typo. I meant 4.1.

I'm hesitent to put out bdb 4.2 packages because Mandrake hasn't
upgraded even in cooker. I really don't know what their reasoning is.
But I have to keep my packages building on cooker. I'm not really in a
position where I get to decide what bdb version they have.

Obviously anyone that needs a bdb4.2 linked subversion can do so simply
by installing it and rebulding my packages against it.
