Looks like it might be a Debian bug - I've not actually tried building
it (though I've actually switched to running Debian on my desktop
box), but all the other symbols in db.h get defined to ..._4000 (a
debian specificness AFAICT), apart from the txn_ stuff, then the
library has __txn_begin_4000 defined, but not without the _4000.
