What compiler are you using? I don't get any significant warnings when
compiling with gcc or egcs, even when using -Wall to turn on all warnings.

Did you do a "make install" or just copy the files? The "@DATABASE_DIR@" is
a variable that is expanded when the files are run through the make program.

No, the database code is installed into the binaries directly (statically).
It won't use any other copies of BerkeleyDB or anything else for that
matter. It didn't run the merge because it couldn't find the databases, as
the sort error above indicates.
