FWIW: I compiled INN Current 2.6.0 with Berkeley DB 4.8.24 (compiled 
from the sources) on a Debian Lenny system without a problem, ovdb_init 
-u successfully upgraded the version 4.7 OVDB database and I also did a 
complete rebuild of OVDB with makehistory -O (2 hours for 10 million 
articles on an idle system with 2 GiB ram, spool is CNFS on LVM raw 

As this is a test system, it's not possible to carry out extensive
performance tests, however. Also, I don't use OVDB on the production 
systems and do not intend to do so in the future.

If you would like me to do any tests for you, please feel free to
contact my by email.
