If you do 

    perl -MCPAN -e shell
    install DB_File

then you get that port.

Note that the Berkeley-DB library (from the db41 port) and the Perl
interface thereto (DB_File) are two different things.


PS: Is "thereto" correct in this context?  It seemed like a cool way
    to make the sentence shorter ;-)
