Does your system meet all requirements listed in the README file?
Sounds like you may need the PEAR DB package.

#> pear list
Installed packages, channel pear.php.net:
Package        Version State
Archive_Tar    1.3.1   stable
Console_Getopt 1.2     stable
DB             1.7.6   stable
PEAR           1.4.9   stable

If you don't have DB listed try this:

#> pear install DB
