Yes !
Now I see what failed. It was the pthread RedHat thingy. I found
the error in the config.log and I found the solution in the
mailing list archives. I had to do export LDFLAGS="-lpthread"
before configuring db4.

I tried to add this to db4.spec :

LDFLAGS="-lpthread"; export LDFLAGS

but it didn't make it, then I tried export LDFLAGS="-lpthread"
then rpmbuild db4 and it worked. Right now I have a cyrus rpm
just compiled.

Thank you everybody for your help.
