No ideas. Maybe a problem in libdb1 on alpha?

You can examine the db using

/usr/sbin/accessdb | less

and see what's there :-)

To the alpha-people: did libdb2 compile on alpha (maybe removing
binary-java from binary-arch)?
If so you can try to compile man-db with db2 (I have it here on my 486)
I can send you the patch to compile with db2.

Or you can try to recompile using gdbm and see if it works (just
configure by hand with  "configure --with-db=gdbm" ).
