It's rather naughty but it's inside Configure so it's hard to spot.
You don't need to use ls, though, just echo would do.  But more
importantly, is looking just under /usr/local going to work?
/usr/local may be the default but can't people install BerkeleyDB
pretty anywhere they want?  I have worked in many places where
/usr/local simply wasn't an option, for various technical and/or
political reasons.  I think we need to look under all the preceding
directories (without the /include, with the BerkeleyDB*) in locincpth.
