Coda uses libdb 1.85 for some of the databases that are shared between
servers. Your machine is possibly missing the libdb1-dev rpm's, db1.85
is included in glibc, but the development headers are typically not
there because 1.85 is considered 'deprecated'. To really let people know
the old libdb is deprecated they also keep moving the headers and
changing the library name on each glibc release.

So even if you have libdb1-dev rpms installed, you might still need to
grab the more recent Coda-5.3.14 sources from, which
is looking in all places that I currently know of.
