 Who knows if its data layout is machine-independent? Probably it
 isn't, so don't expect that to work.
 If you want to check interoperability, please build rpm from pkgsrc
 with the same Berkeley DB version that the native rpm is using.
 Otherwise it will probably fail to open the database and you might or
 might not get comprehensible error messages out.
 The original problem of this PR has now been fixed, in any event.
