For a while I did weep. I just downgraded to db-4.0 and that did the trick.
Apparently, the function signature changed. I was hoping someone had a fix
for Kerberos to upgrade it. What the heck, I guess I could do that in my
spare time if no one else is interested; open source is great.
I was building as root, shame on me. I should know better, as concrete
evidence suggests. It might have been the KTH project's previous stable
release I'm thinking about, or maybe it was some other security/network
project, but a trojan got into a source release and was propogated through
mirrors prompting a cleanup release. Check the pgp signatures of your
tarballs! Make pgp signatures for your tarballs!
