This is noticed on all NetBSD ports with shared libs;
it may be a bigger problem on other platforms.

Show quoted text

In lib/kadm5/srv/, LIBS
includes -ldb. This is wrong because:

1) I'm not convinced libs should ever get set in a Makefile.

2) libdb is not shared, and cannot be linked against libkadm5srv on
anything besides AIX. Apparently, this is not strictly true, as the
code has worked.

This may create a serious problem on some platforms. It is a
violation of the build process as well, as far as I can tell. I'll
fix and check in, building on as many platforms with shared libs as I
can find.
