Berkeley DB Reference Guide:
Building Berkeley DB for UNIX systems



  1. I can't compile and run multithreaded applications.

    Special compile-time flags are required when compiling threaded applications on Linux. If you are compiling a threaded application, you must compile with the _REENTRANT flag:

    cc -D_REENTRANT ...

    The Berkeley DB library will automatically build with the correct options.
