Enh... no biggie.  Remove the versions you've installed before and get
3.1.17 (I'm assuming you want to run Evolution and it needs _that_
specific version).  Pass the configure script the arguments
--enable-shared --enable-compat185 --enable-cxx in addition to the
--prefix=/usr (I HOPE that's what you're using, otherwise you'll need to
tell gnome-libs about the other prefix probably).  Do the install as
usual, and then make a /usr/include/db3 directory, and inside that put
syminks pointing to wherever the _real_ files db.h, db_185.h, and
db_cxx.h are sitting.

The reason you have to have that subdirectory is something you can blame
RedHat for.
