ext/dba/config.m4 forces this include if it finds db.h in /usr/include

include "/usr/include/db.h"

This, of course, ignores any CPP flags for where Gentoo actually stores it's db.h file.
Changing it to

include "db.h"


Reproduce code:
CPPFLAGS=-I/usr/include/db4.5 ./configure --with-db4

Expected result:
successful configure

Actual result:
checking for db4 major version... configure: error: Header contains different version

Just makes me wonder why Gentoo reinvents the wheel (poorly) and puts headers in non-standard places..

Thank you for the report, and for helping us make PHP better.

And you don't need no stinking CPPFLAGS set now either..
