Well, I'd need to know how to detect it.  I'm assuming that this isn't a
bundled module with configure.  I can't just detect for db2.4 since that
just happens to be the version included in glibc2.[01].  The user might
just have that version installed.

I suppose that I could have configure write a C program that included
<db.h> and linked with -ldb.  If it failed, try including <db2/db.h> and
if that worked, then I've isolated the problem in configure.
