Oh, I see what you mean. You are correct in that it would not
have caught this case since it would have searched the
system and found a "compatible" db install.

I meant that if he had compiled from the source in the db tree,
he would have never run into the problem in the first place.

With the default searching code in place, this would continue
to be a problem. Perhaps that is a good argument for not
using the default system searching code by default, but
that is an argument for another time.
