As I see it, we don't have bsddb3 in the repos, someone should import 
it. I can look at it in the next days.

But when the bindings are not supported upstream (I read something along 
those lines, while looking at those patches), I won't backport them to 
the Mga2 (and perhaps Mga1 as well?) package.
I will just backport the security related patches from the cauldron 
package then.
