That is already done. Evolution uses the static lib built by db-3.1.7.

It would be much cleaner (given the changes between versions) to either 
install the actual db3 libraries or not install them at all and (when 
required) patch packages that depend on db3 to use db-4.1.

Most probably it won't work with db-4.1.x owing to the change in API 
(some functions have a transaction id as an additional parameter).
