Berkeley db upgrade

I'm trying to upgrade Berkeley db from 4.2 to 4.3 but i dont know how.
I downloaded the file from there website, extracted it, but all it contains are directories.
normaly i do a:
./configure --prefix={pkgdir}
make install
cd /{pkgdir}

but there is nothing to configure.
this must be a silly question, but i'm am a silly man.

Look or tweak and use SlackBuild script found in Slackware's source/l/db4 directory.
There is something like this construction:
../dist/configure \
  --prefix=/usr \
  --enable-shared \
  --enable-rpc \
  --enable-compat185 \
make -j3
make install DESTDIR=$PKG
