It's mentioned in the PCBuild/readme.txt file:
Go to Sleepycat's download page:
and download version 4.1.25. The file name is db-4.1.25.NC.zip.
XXX with or without strong cryptography? I picked "without".
and that is what I used to build the installer.
I ran the test-suite on several machines, with mixed results:
win98 - always fails.
win2k - most of the time it works, sometimes it fails.
winXP - I have not seen any failures.
