i found only one way to build the port in www/apache21 with db support:

adding a symlink -> in usr/lib. After this i was able to patch
Makefile.modules to use libdb1 (alias libc).

I know i could dive into autoconf hell for apache-2.0.47, where db
support worked, but maybe someone has already more insight. 

Btw. the problem with newer db versions (3,4,4.1 ...) is that dbmmanage
perl script does not work with them.
