Ok, I'm kinda chasing my tail here... Is 4.1 supposed to work in -CURRENT? 
I've tried upgrading my test server to current.  Using ovdb_init -u failed miserably
(with db-4.1), so I killed everything, blew away my overview files, and figured I'd
use makehistory to rebuild it.  Looks like I need to do a ovdb_init now before
running makehistory, because makehistory causes errors about ovdb_monitor.. So I
start ovdb_init, which creates a bunch of files, but does *not* create the ovnnnnn files.

I run makehistory, and makehistory now says that it cannot open overview, file exists.
But what's showing up in *syslog* is DB handle previously used in transaction,
missing transaction handle, and open: can't store numdbfiles: invalid argument...

So how in hell do you rebuild the db now, or is both current and stable just plain broken?

In other news, the doc/man/Makefile for CURRENT needs updating.  Apparently sm
moved from .8 to .1, and got added to the section1 file list, but didn't get deleted from the
section 8 file list, which kills installs.  This is as of 20030213.
