configure fails when used with

CC="cc" CFLAGS="-I/usr/local/include" CXX="CC" CFLAGS="-I/usr/local/include" ./configure --prefix=/usr/local/mysql --enable-thread-safe-client --with-berkeley-db=./bdb --with-innodb --with-openssl --with-extra-charsets=complex --with-vio

it gives

configure: creating ./config.status
../../././bdb/dist/configure: line 21797: cat: not found
config.status: creating Makefile
config.status: error: cannot find input file: Makefile.in
configure: error: could not configure Berkeley DB

I have used this for many years and it is now failing.  I downloaded from ftp://mysql.mirror.redwire.net/pub/mysql/MySQL-4.1/mysql-4.1.8.tar.gz and the md5 sum was ok.

How to repeat:
Download from a mirror and verify the md5 sum.
$ gunzip mysql-4.1.8.tar.gz
$ tar xf mysql-4.1.8.tar
$ cd mysql-4.1.8
$ CC="cc" CFLAGS="-I/usr/local/include" CXX="CC" CFLAGS="-I/usr/local/include" ./configure --prefix=/usr/local/mysql --enable-thread-safe-client --with-berkeley-db=./bdb --with-innodb --with-openssl --with-extra-charsets=complex --with-vio

Use libtool macros to find cat or edit created Makefile and change cat to /usr/local/bin/cat

MySQL-4.1.8a now has a problem in the innodbase directory.

$ pwd

$ make
/bin/ksh: syntax error at line 1: `;' unexpected
make: *** [/Makefile.in] Error 3

The cat problem was fixed with mysql-4.1.8a but now configure and make fails.
[28 Dec 2004 17:46] Boyd GERBER
The problem is the

srcdir = 
top_srcdir = 

are not being set now in the Makefile.

Also after making changes to use readline instead of libedit.

Fixed in mysql-4.1.11 if I patch db_config.h or copy mysql-4.1.10/bdb/build_unix/db_config.h
[7 Apr 2005 15:36] Boyd GERBER
Fixed, but new bug with generation of db_config.h. see bug 9698.
