I've got a cold right now so read the bugzilla entry at
to make sure my advice sounds sensible.

I think you need to recompile db4 with the --disable-posixmutexes switch
to make things work. You can do this in the db4 rpm, by replacing the
--enable-posixmutexes switch with --disable-posixmutexes and doing a
rebuild. I believe someone posted precompiled db4's on in the bugzilla
as well.
