If it does what the summary says ("permits distribution of certain MySQL
Client Libraries with a developer’s FOSS applications licensed under the
terms of another FOSS license listed below, even though such other FOSS
license may be incompatible with the GPL") then I think it would only if
its list contains all licences in debian in BDB-using packages.  I
expect asking apt or similar for the rdepends and checking their
copyrights might be one way to do that.

Hope that informs,
