I was assuming the latter.  But, reading
this does not look like a safe assumption.

Unless the application itself checks the libdb version and upgrades
its database files.

At least with the transition from 4.6 to 4.7 the database file format
did not change.

Sure, but this is mostly intended to be used as a pre-processor by
other applications like awffull or webalizer.
