Step 5, but you have to spell it right (--without-berkeley-db, note
the extra "e").

>Also, what exactly does step #4 do? Is it needed?

It's not needed if you use a release tarball -- only if you want to
build from the bleeding edge (the SVN development repository).

Don't know about Windows, but what you described is the standard open
source tarball build procedure that should work for any Unix. I've
done what you describe on Linux Fedora 1, NetBSD, and Mac OS X.
