I didn't touch the autoconf code that finds the include file, nor the #ifdef
mess in dbmmodule.c that decides which to use, so it could only lead to
unrunnable/uncompilable code, not to a new .db silently being used. But I
agree that this is not a suitable fix for 2.1.1, I just wish we could fix it
