As another example of the Berkeley DB issues ...

I was building pre-requisites for kdebase. I already had openldap
installed, but a new version was needed and a newer Berkeley DB was

So it built db4. But it was already installed, so I uninstalled it.

So when I started up the kdebase build again, it then built db3 (instead
of db4). But db3 was already installed.

So I uninstalled db3. And restarted the kdebase again:

reed@puget:/usr/pkgsrc/x11/kdebase3$ time bmake package
===> Checking for vulnerabilities in kdebase-3.3.2nb2
=> Checksum OK for kdebase-3.3.2.tar.bz2.

I see that databases/openldap/ has:

.if !empty(PKG_OPTIONS:Mbdb)
BDB_ACCEPTED=           db4 # db3?
.  include "../../mk/"

I don't why it is now trying db-2. Any ideas?

reed@puget:/usr/pkgsrc/databases/openldap$ bmake show-var VARNAME=BDB_ACCEPTED

reed@puget:/usr/pkgsrc/databases/openldap$ bmake show-var VARNAME=BDB_TYPE

reed@puget:/usr/pkgsrc/databases/openldap$ cd -

reed@puget:/usr/pkgsrc/x11/kdebase3$ bmake show-var VARNAME=BDB_TYPE
