Evolution requires Berkeley DB-3.1.17. The details on "why" are in the README file distibuted with the Evolution source code. Evolution links to the library statically, hence this book installs the Berkeley DB-3.1.17 in /opt, which can be removed once Evolution is installed.
Install Berkeley DB-3.1.17 by running the following commands:
cd build_unix && ../dist/configure --prefix=/opt/db-3.1.17 --enable-compat185 && make && make install
Install Evolution by running the following commands:
./configure --prefix=`pkg-config --variable=prefix ORBit-2.0` \ --with-db3=/opt/db-3.1.17 --enable-openssl && make && make install
Optionally, you may remove Berkeley DB-3.1.17 installed above with this command:
rm -rf /opt/db-3.1.17
--enable-compat185: Build support for older database files.
--prefix=/opt/db-3.1.17: This version of the Berkeley Database should not be installed in /usr, as it is only needed for the building of Evolution.
--with-db3=/opt/db-3.1.17: Specify the location where db-3.1.17 is installed.
--enable-openssl: This flag will compile SSL support into Evolution.
--with-openldap: This flag will compile LDAP support into Evolution.
