There's obviously something very wrong with your installed ports.
The permissions of libdb* files here are:
% flame:/usr/local/lib$ ls -ld libdb*
% lrwxr-xr-x 1 root wheel - 14 Oct 19 12:39 libdb-4.2.so -> libdb-4.2.so.2
% lrwxr-xr-x 1 root wheel - 19 Oct 19 12:39 libdb-4.2.so.2 -> db42/libdb-4.2.so.2
% lrwxr-xr-x 1 root wheel - 18 Oct 19 12:39 libdb_cxx-4.2.so -> libdb_cxx-4.2.so.2
% lrwxr-xr-x 1 root wheel - 23 Oct 19 12:39 libdb_cxx-4.2.so.2 -> db42/libdb_cxx-4.2.so.2
% lrwxr-xr-x 1 root wheel - 15 Aug 14 23:39 libdbh-1.0.so -> libdbh-1.0.so.1
% -rwxr-xr-x 1 root wheel - 30248 Aug 14 23:39 libdbh-1.0.so.1
% -rw-r--r-- 1 root wheel - 32924 Aug 14 23:39 libdbh.a
% lrwxr-xr-x 1 root wheel - 15 Aug 14 23:39 libdbh.so -> libdbh-1.0.so.1
If you used the standard Ports stuff to install these and they
have these broken permissions, it may be a side-effect of a
broken umask setting for the root user.
What do you see if you log in as 'root' and issue:
Is this 0022 or something similar, or not? If not, what value
does it print?
