numerous apps still look for a static "libdb.a". one example, OpenDKIM.

installing on opensuse 12.1:

uname -ri
3.1.0-1.2-desktop x86_64
lsb_release -dir
Distributor ID: SUSE LINUX
Description: openSUSE 12.1 (x86_64)
Release: 12.1

zypper in libdb-4_8-32bit libdb-4_8-devel libdb-4_8 libdbi0
ls -al /usr/lib64/libdb.a
ls: cannot access /usr/lib64/libdb.a: No such file or directory

it's missing. comparing to upstream default build:

tar zxvf db-5.3.15.tar.gz
cd db-5.3.15/build_unix/
./dist/configure --prefix=/usr/local/BerkeleyDB.5.3
make install
ls -al /usr/local/BerkeleyDB.5.3/cd lib64/
-rw-r--r-- 1 root root 2.9M Jan 18 19:25 libdb-5.3.a
-rw-r--r-- 1 root root 2.9M Jan 18 19:25 libdb.a
