Berkeley DB is a strange beast. It's available on a number of platforms
where it's used for things like password databases and sendmail mappings.
Unfortunately, this makes it difficult to upgrade without figuring out all
the places it's used and upgrading those tools as well.
(Not saying this is your problem, just speculating.)
