I do have a workaround, if the only reason why you want db44 is  
because you're trying to install subversion:

$ sudo port install apr-util +no_bdb
$ sudo port install subversion +no_bdb
$ sudo port install py-numpy

I do not know why you're having trouble building db44. I'm currently  
building it myself to see if I get the same problem.
