there is a problem with gcc <3.3.3 (that's what the files say, alas it
might be nobody know whether it /still/ occurs with gcc 4 e.g.) that
makes binaries of db4 built with optimization flags unusable.

(the binaries pretend to run but runtime errors are common; i didn't dig
into this further, yet.)

so there's a '' file for db4 (as there's one for perl5 and
firefox) -- the thing is, it doesn't seem to work as intended.

when building db4 there always shows up an '-O2', and the binaries won't
run okay.

any hints very much appreciated -- db4 is crucial for lots of apps
(cyrus 2.2.x, netatalk, etc.).
