Subversion 1.3.x does not supprt BDB-4.4. That support is currently only
on trunk (although a backport is planned).

Also, it's entirely impossible that you got an error mentioning
DB_REGISTER from the 1.3.0 tarball.

So, which version of SVN are you actually using?

I suppose we should tweak configure to accept only blessed versions of
BDB, yes; because the BDB API is prone to ABI changes between minor
releases.

Possibly. AFAIK we do mention BDB version related things in CHANGES.
That should be enough.

Anyway, we can't retroactively change the 1.3.0 release notes.
