 If you're using glibc-2 (libc 6), I'd recommend that you remove libdb 
entirely. Glibc has it's own, which resides in /lib, so as
far as I can tell, the situation is this:

 * ld links gnome-gen-mimedb with, and finds it in /usr/lib

 * ld-linux (the dynamic linker) looks for at runtime, and
   finds it in /lib, with the obvious mismatch ocurring.
