mycroft argues that we should not require our version of the db library be used
on operating systems with a compatible db library.
Currently, this is a non-issue as no such OS exists. However,
especially if we want BSD4.4 based operating systems to be able to integrate
krb5, the OS vendors may wish to be able to have this functionality.

Either provide a configure-time option or attempt to auto-detect;
I like a manual option as I don't think we will ever be able to prove compatability.

Let's hold off until DB2 actually happens.

Subject: allow use of system db library
We may not be able to update to Berkeley db 3 or 4 in the main tree
because of licensing, but that doesn't mean people downloading it can't
use these versions, as long as they provide the APIs we need. Add
configure options to support this, similar to the options added for et,
New configure time options added, --with-system-db (default: in-tree
version), DB_HEADER= (default: db.h), DB_LIB= (default: -ldb).
