That has been fixed using the compile option suggested by Piotrs.

4.1.11a-3 has been uploaded to unstable and is now finally waiting for your
approval to go into Sarge.
P.S.: The complete list of changes up to the current version in Sarge:
mysql-dfsg-4.1 (4.1.11a-3) unstable; urgency=high
* Added patch from Piotr Roszatycki to compile the bundled db3 library
that is needed for the BerkeleyDB support with versioned symbols so
that mysqld no longer crashes when it gets linked together with the
Debian db3 version which happens when e.g. using libnss-db.

mysql-dfsg-4.1 (4.1.11a-2) unstable; urgency=high
* Okay, the hackery with /var/lib/dpkg/info/mysql-server.list will not
stand and is removed from the preinst of mysql-server.
* New workaround for the symlink problem that does not involve mucking
with dpkg's file lists is storing the symlinks in a temporary location
As this sometimes fails since apt-get does not always call new.preinst
before old.postrm, some remarks were added to README.Debian and the
Debconf installation notes to minimize the inconvinience this causes.

mysql-dfsg-4.1 (4.1.11a-1) unstable; urgency=high
* Added the "a" to the version number to be able to upload a new
.orig.tar.gz file which now has the non-free Docs/ directory removed
as this has been forgotten in the 4.1.11 release (thanks to Goeran
Weinholt). Closes: #308691
* The Woody package listed /var/lib/mysql and /var/log/mysql in its
/var/lib/dpkg/info/mysql-server.list. These directories are often
replaced by symlinks to data partitions which triggers a dpkg bug
that causes these symlinks to be removed on upgrades. The new preinst
prevents this by removing the two lines from the .list file
(thanks to Andreas Barth and Jamin W. Collins). See dpkg bug #287978.
* Updated French Debconf translation (thanks to Christian Perrier).
