Two BDB questions

Ok I have two BDB questions:

First, I have heard time and time again to not USE bdb based repos on
an NFS share. My question is whether it would be safe to use
hot-backup.py or svnadmin hotcopy to access the BDB repo over NFS and
create a local copy?

Second, I have a Red Hat 8.0 system which seems to have
libdb{4.0,4.1,4.2}, and I want to install and run 4.4 (I guess the
latest is the greatest right?). So I download the db4.4 and the
configure/build goes perfectly but when I try to tell subversion to
use it (with --with-berkeley-db=/usr/local/Berkeley4.4) it still grabs
the 4.0 version! I made sure that this path was in my /etc/ld.so.conf
file, but no luck. Looking at the configure it seems to be looking
for a db4.4/db.h file, but my build does not produce a directory
named that at all.

Ok trying it on my gentoo box (I had 4.3 installed so this test works
ok) I see that it says:
checking for Berkeley DB 4.4 in /usr/local/BerkeleyDB.4.4/lib...
checking for -ldb-4.4... no

Yet an 'ls /usr/local/BerkeleyDB.4.4/lib' gives:
libdb-4.4.a libdb-4.4.la libdb-4.4.so libdb-4.so libdb.a libdb.so

Any ideas (/usr/local/BerkeleyDB.4.4/lib/ is in /etc/ld.so.conf, and I
performed and env-update)?
