 what happens is: sees an installed db* and helpfully uses it instead of the
 bsddb185 shim. So to get the package to package as it is now, simply
 build in an environment where there's no db* installed.
 To fix one could:
 - remove the section in that drags in the installed db libs
 better fix:
 - option a dependency on whatever db* the user wants. If you just
 un-PLIST the bsddb185 lib if you have a 'real' db installed you get
 a package with a dependency on a db package that may not be installed
 on the target system.
