Re: BerkeleyDB4.2 not looked for in build?

John, you and I have been repeating this "formula" to users left and
right, about 20 times in the last few weeks. Do you think you could add
it to our FAQ? Submit a FAQ patch? I'm dying to just point people to a
fixed writeup.

Once a new apr-util is released (or a new httpd), this won't be an issue
anymore. (The latest apr-util in CVS can detect BDB 4.2 just fine.) But
for now, this is a problem that is continuously biting newbies. The
fact that we're recommending BDB 4.2 is making the problem even more
