You need to install a version of BDB that is compatible with the version of openldap that you are trying to install.

* Get the latest DB from oricle

* Compile and install it
cd build_unix
sudo make install

Now I had the DB in /usr/BerkeleyDB.4.5/
remove all /usr/lib/libdb files. (I had some libdbh that I left alone)
manually remove /usr/lib/db* - best not do it blindly. butI had references to db3 and db4

Now copy /usr/BerkeleyDB.4.5/bin lib and include to /usr/bin lib and include.

run ldconfig

openldaps configure should work now
