You need to link to whatever library contains the runtime for that function. In this case it looks like you're using Berkley DB so it'll be something like db_cxx or db_c.

link against libdb.a
i.e. add -ldb to your linker commandline
or, if you prefer do it in your IDE, go to your project settings, you should find something like "libraries" or "dependencies" and add the required library
