I included the file for db4 into the ruby-iconv Makefile
in pkgsrc-2006Q2 and it was able to build successfully.  I guess I need
to do some reasearch into the buildlink files.  Why does pkgsrc try to
override the arguments passed to libtool?  This seems to be specific to
pkgsrc, I don't think the FreeBSD ports does this.
