Because it doesn't. It's just the way Berkeley DB works. The db
formats are incompatable (you can upgrade a version 4.0 db to work with
4.1 though), and the API/ABI is different. If you build with one
version you must run with that same version. That's just the way things
are. The check is there for a reason. Recompile with consistent BDB
versions and move on with your life.
