Yes! You can link both against db-4 !

Where do you have libdb.so/libdb.a files ? Does your linker search that
path during linking ? It seems that libdb-4.1.so cannot be found ! Do
you have libdb-4.1.so ? If not: Make a link from libdb.so to libdb-4.1.so!

So you only have libdb.so and not libdb-4.1.so I think !
