Description of problem:
You guys forgot to include all of the devel files in this compat
package. These are very necessary for those of us who compile
programs from scratch that are written for older versions of Berkley
DB (yes, not all of us use RPM exclusively).
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
Actual Results: http://www.squidguard.org/
As an example, here is a well-maintained program that I need to
install that specifically requires db2. I can't because half of the
devel files are missing from compat-db
Expected Results: I should have been able to compile this.
compat-db is not intended to supply a devel environment, only
the sonames and libraries necessary for legacy compatibility.
Port to db-4.2.52, not hard.

Porting to DB v4.2.52
If you're still scratching your head about squidguard, here's a small tip of
what I had to do to forward port Python 1.5.2 to compile against db4 4.2.52.
