I believe that the version that came with FreeBSD is there because of 
the license. DB 1.85 is licensed under the BSD license, while later 
versions have been taken over by sleepycat, and have a much more 
restrictive license.

Personally, I use the DB built into FreeBSD if I can, but I have built 
and used 3.x and 4.x versions for other software that requires it. As 
for perl DB_File ... I'm not sure, but I doubt you can have it coexist.

At one point, I had DB 1.85, 3.x and 4.x installed on the system, but 
you have to be carefull to ensure that stuff that will eventually get 
linked together all uses the same version of the library or you will get 
weird core dumps once in a while.
