you need to initialize bbdb for (probably) gnus, and the .bbdb gets
created once you start creating & adding addresses.

This is what I use, but ...

(require 'bbdb-loaddefs)
(bbdb-initialize 'gnus 'message)
(setq bbdb-complete-mail-allow-cycling t)
(setq bbdb-message-all-addresses t) 
(setq bbdb-mua-update-interactive-p '(query . create))

(bbdb-mua-auto-update-init 'message 'mail)
(setq bbdb-mua-auto-update-p 'query)

you might also want to check out
(setq bbdb-default-country "add-your-default-country-here")
