   Can I have two different modules simultaneously? For example, a module
linked with db.1.85 plus a module linked with db3.

   After compiling bsddb-3.2 from sources I have got
/usr/local/BerkeleyDB.3.2/ directory, with lib/include being its
subdirectories. The patch didn't look into this, as I understand it.

           Programmers don't die, they just GOSUB without RETURN.
