Are you sure there isn't anything getting logged onto the console?

You could try adding something like this to /etc/syslog.conf:

*.*                                             /var/log/bbstored
*.*                                             /var/log/bbackupd

Do you mean the bdb libraries? /usr/include/db.h is where the db1 header 
is, or you can install db4.x from ports.

I'm not quite sure what you mean by this.

The OPTIONS dialogue says that if you enable TESTS, there is a test 
target you can run, i.e. run `make test`.
