Your previous configure option said to look for the db-5.3 library in
.../lib/db43, which is why the 5.3 library wasn't found. Also, you don't
have to put the whole path to the header as the first parameter, just
the file name, since the second parameter is the include path.

Anyway, since it works, all's well.

By the way, is there any particular reason you need the BDB back-end?
It's been deprecated for a while now; see
