Ah, cool :-) I'm still not quite sure how many people are using the
FreeBSD port as I don't get much feedback on it. Hopefully that means it
just works!

BDB is only used by the client, to store state information. It's not
required, but nice to have, so I've turned it on by default.

To be honest, I don't even use that, I had copied the idea from the
PostgreSQL port! Thought some people might like to use it, though.
