Coda uses libdb1.85 for the databases that are shared between servers,
there should be a db1-devel package that installs the correct headers
and so on. The only problem is that the location of these seem to be
changing with every glibc release. It used to be db.h and -ldb, then it
became db.h and -ldb1, followed by db_185.h and -ldb1, and in the latest
version is popped up as db1/db.h and -ldb1. The old headers still seem
to exist but provide wrappers for db2/db3.
