I'm trying to build gnumeric on a:
uname -a
SunOS <hostname_not_applicable> 5.8 Generic_108528-16 sun4u sparc 

which doesn't have libdb installed on it already.

I went to and downloaded and built their latest 
version, but (as shown below) it doesn't have a 1.85 compatibility mode.

Can someone point me to the best place to get a gnumeric-compatible 
libdb?  (a filename would be helpful if it's not obvious).

Below is my configure error message:
checking for strdup... (cached) yes
checking for utime.h... yes
checking for unistd.h... (cached) yes
checking for getpagesize... (cached) yes
checking for working mmap... (cached) yes
checking for umode_t... no
checking for dbopen... no
checking for dbopen in -ldb... no
checking for dbopen in -ldb1... no
configure: error: Your db library is missing db 1.85 compatibility mode

Hmm.  Gnumeric does not depend on libdb.  That test must be coming
from the gnome default tests somehow.  What version of gnumeric is
this ?  My first guess would be that any version of libdb is ok, but
you need to compile it with the 1.85 compatibility enabled.  I have
not needed to look at that in a long time.
