I still dont see what is the advantage of using it with portupgrade? in 
sleepycat.com there is info about bdb4 but I couldnt find a comparison 
or anything which might show the differences?

Version 4.1 of the Berkeley DB library. This version uses an underlying
database format incompatible with revision 1 and a different standard API.
Utilities are included in the distribution to convert v1.85 databases to 
databases, and a backwards compatible API is provided to maintain
compatibility with programs using the v1.85 interface.

For details on compatibility with other DB versions, see:
