"..Package: libdb3++-dev

Berkeley v3 Database Libraries for C++ [development]

This is the development package which contains headers and static
libraries for the Berkeley v3 database library. This is only for
programs which will use the C++ interface.

Many programs use the Berkeley Database to store their data. Other
versions of the database can be found in the db2, db4.0, db4.1 and db4.2
