I don't care if both are available, but with what (little) I know about
autoconf, I don't see any other way for me to determine which version of
db to use for compilation/linking.
I currently support building on sid, woody, potato, and it used to work
on slink - but I no longer have a chroot for that (I do have the CD, is
there still an archive to update slink?).
Detecting db2 vs db1 was trivial, but now I can't even do that - all I know
is that it is:
db2 iff /usr/include/db2/db.h exists
db1 *or* db3 otherwise
