The most popular one is to ignore the messages that 'make install' prints for
libraries, i.e. that you need to tell the runtime (dynamic) linker where to
find the created libs. That's not the one biting you here though.

I guess you configured BDB with '--prefix=/home/i386-pc-solaris2/db-4.3.28',

You tell configure via CPPFLAGS/LDFLAGS and via --with-berkeley
where to find BDB, once should be enough.

These are ok, as your headers are not installed in a db4 or db43 subsolder.

Here, it picked up your headers.

Did I say it's not the runtime linker not picking up files? Hmmm, I might be
wrong after all. Also, I think BDB installs a few binaries that have to be in
$PATH for them to work.

Also, I wonder what the '[...]' output above was and what additional info is
in config.log, in particular what the last test was that failed.
