Yes. The biggest problem is that <iostream.h> might mean something different

hmmm, switching compilers around randomly is not a solution, especially if
you're missing two of them that where at least temporarily in Debian: 3.0 and
3.1 (I wont even talk about RH-crap like 2.96).
Make sure that your version of libdb++ was compiled with the proper compiler.
You might also want to check that other programs still run with it.
Another point would be a compile-time option turning off (eeck!)
namespace-support while compiling libdb++ (which would ask for a severe bug).
Lastly, find out where the broken and working libdb++s come from, esp that
neither of them are out of date.
In case you couldn't find anything, sync your sources.list and 'apt-get
install --reinstall libdb3++ libdb3++-dev g++ ....'. This wont really help
finding the error though.
