Urk. Quite right. I'll have to think on that one...

The idiot/temp solution is to add "-" to each of the commands to ignore any
potential exit code :-)

It would be nice to simply assume that DB3 is present and build everything.
I'm not sure if we want to do that, though. That would preclude somebody
grabbing the source and just building a client.

I'm not sure which side of the fence I'm on with expecting DB3 to be
present.

And I really don't think expecting the DB3 distro to be in our source tree
is a good thing. It is readily available as RPMs that people can simply
install. Neon and APR aren't as old or readily available, so it makes a bit
of sense to include them. We could conceivably just punt Neon, too. APR is
tougher, as we use some of its .m4 files; we'll use its libtool; etc.
