Ah. That's because Fedora has broken dlopen by creating the non-standard /usr/lib64 and not modifying dlopen's search accordingly. See dlopen (3).

You can either call configure with --with-dbd-dir=/usr/lib64/dbd, add /usr/lib64/dbd to $LD_LIBRARY_PATH, or add it to /etc/ld.so.conf.d and run ldconfig as root.

I'll add some detail about that to the "not found" message.
