damn...  so we're realy not any better off with this migration than
we were for the glibc induced libdb problem a few months ago ;-{

I was hoping we'd wind up with versioned symbols, or something that
allowed coexistance of the varied versions.

So, are you uploading both libsasl and libldap?  I'll need both for
sendmail (which has recommended libdb3 for quite a while).

Lastly, what about lib-nss ?  it can/will cause the same problem for
those using databases for hosts, users, etc.
