How are you getting the "-I/usr/local/BerkeleyDB.4.1/include" into
your compile lines?

It seems likely that you're somehow attempting to use a more recent
version of Berkeley DB to build krb5.  We don't recommend this for the
1.2.x series, though we might support it in a future release.  Unless
you have a really good reason not to, and are willing to put in the
work yourself to make it build, I'd recommend sticking to the special
version of Berkeley DB that is included in the krb5 source tree.
