Well, I am using the httpd from Davids set of rpms (anything that your
svn rpm wanted, I got by installing from your rpms), so that it somewhat
reassuring.

I also used ldd to check out both the apache executable and all modules
in its modules directory; everything that referenced db4 was using the
4.2 .so (except libphp, which we don't use, but I've removed that
library just to be paranoid). The svn executables and all language
binding libraries on the system are also (according to ldd) using 4.2,
so I am inclined to believe that a mixed db library was not the problem.
