Oh, I noticed you're using 3.4. I've only ever used BerkeleyDB with the Python 2.7 series. Maybe it makes no difference, but all the code I've ever written was with the 2.7 series. As of a few years ago a lot of the important scientific libraries had not been ported to 3.x. Are the Python bindings for DB supposed to support 3.4?

First I ran into a problem of a double declaration of pid_t from a types.h in the Anaconda distribution, however it seemed to be alright just to comment the typedef out in the db.h of the Berkeley DB. Now I have a problem which I found harder to tackle.
