db4 is completely screwed up since rhl9 and works on i686 processors
with NPTL kernels only. For prior processors or vanilla kernels you have
to rebuild db4 yourself.

Reasons for this decision are unclear, I just heared it would be cool to
have concurrent db4 access with posix mutexes, and applications which
are using concurrent db4 access should package an internal db4 without
posix mutexes. Does it sound silly for you? It is silly...
