Well... *expecting* the DB3 distro is different than *allowing* it.

Repackaging Neon/APR is one thing. DB3 is a completely different beast. Size
does matter.

I think that I'm agreeing with Mo's patches for looking in the current
directory for a DB3 source tree, and building it if found. I'll probably
commit the change tomorrow or so, unless somebody speaks up against doing
so.
