Well, qmon links a $SGE_ROOT/lib library shared based on LD_LIBRARY_PATH.
But only qmaster and some utilities in utilbin depend upon libdb-4.2.so.
So removing SGE entry from LD_LIBRARY_PATH always must be fine as
long as you do not operate a CSP system (install_qmaster -csp). This is
because the libraries with CSP are needed also by clients and execds.
