The C++ library is only built as a static library 
(.libs/libdb4_cxx-4.4.a), not as a shared library (*.so), but I don't 
know why.

Since the typescript is from February, I ask you to update your pkgsrc 
and to try again. Maybe it has been fixed meanwhile.

By the way, I tried to reproduce it, and for me it works (using sunpro 
as the compiler).
