configure output:
checking for OpenSSL... yes
./configure: test: =: unary operator expected
checking "character sets"... default: latin1; compiled in: latin1 
checking for BerkeleyDB... supplied
configure: error: didn't find valid BerkeleyDB: '/usr/local/BerkeleyDB.4.1' doesn't look like a BDB directory (invalid version 4.1.25 (must be version 3.2.3h or ))

How to repeat:
Install BDB 4.1.25 and try to get configure to not error out with mysql 4.0.13

Suggested fix:
adjust configure script
