Bug#565242: libdb-dev: db4.8 breaks multiple programs

retitle 565242 libdb-dev: db4.8 breaks sendmail
thank you

Hi Richard,

could you confirm that this is still an issue? The db-defaults was
meanwhile upgraded to depend on db5.1, so the situation has changed

Last message from clint was:

I guess either the sendmail needs a fix or you depend on libdb4.7-dev
for now. (However I would like to slowly narrow down the number of db*
versions in unstable.)
