Compiling Trouble (BDB)

On my server, I'm trying to compile the latest subversion from source, but
I'm getting hung up with Berkeley DB.

I configured, made, and installed BDB (from source) without a problem. Then
I unzipped APR and APR-util into apr and apr-util directories under my
subversion source, but when I do a ./configure, I get this:

configure: WARNING: we have configured without BDB filesystem support

 You don't seem to have Berkeley DB version 4.0.14 or newer
installed and linked to APR-UTIL. We have created Makefiles which
will build without the Berkeley DB back-end; your repositories will
use FSFS as the default back-end. You can find the latest version of
Berkeley DB here:

So, if Subversion compiles apr-util automatically, it is unable to guess
where BDB was installed.

Fine. If I "./configure --with-berkeley-db=/usr/local/BerkeleyDB.4.7/" then
I get:

checking for Berkeley DB... not found
configure: error: Berkeley DB not found.
configure failed for apr-util

Grr. Does anyone have a guess as to what has gone wrong here? Or perhaps, is
there a directory under Subversion that I can put BDB (like how I do with
apr and apr-util) to have it compile it in a way that it might prefer?

For reference, I'm running an old Ubuntu server (please do not suggest
apt-get it seems to be unhappy on my server) and I currently serve up my
subversion repository svnserve, so I don't need to link this up to Apache.

Also, I'm not subscribed to this list, so if you could CC me in your reply,
I'd appreciate it.
