You could try installing DB as suggested in the RPM hint at:

And if that still doesn't work, try editing the gnome-libs configure 
script. Search for "Checking for db" or something and somewhere include 
"-L<path to db libs>". I don't remember what to do exactly, but the idea 
is to specify the exact path or the db libraries (and may be includes) 
so Gnome can find them.
