It seems that it cannot find the library but amavisd-new uses the 
USE_BDB know from just like quite a bunch of other 
ports, so the dependency definition is obviously correct. I don't know 
what causes this error and I haven't got any more PRs from other users. 
Soon, I'll bump the required version again because after the last change 
I got some mails that say newer versions operate even better with 
amavisd-new. I'll just talk to the developer to see, which version would 
be the optimal one or we can just pull in the latest bdb version. I'd 
say let's wait for that update and hopefully that will also solve your
