trying to answer my own question on the Bitcoin stackexchange, I'm following the instructions to build a test network. already I modified the recommendations somewhat, since I see that the author of that document didn't even use the libdb-4.8 he so laboriously downloaded and built. I just used libdb5.3++-dev and had to pass the same --with-incompatible-bdb flag to ./configure even though that supposedly means it's a version of BDB older than 4.8.

it's still building on my DigitalOcean droplet, so it may be a while before I get to actually do some coding and testing. and it's costing me a whopping 3 cents an hour!
