Not an objection to the patch, but a note related to some stuff already
in the file:

We should stop using the grave accent character as a left quote, instead
writing '--without-bekerkeley-db'. See:

Increasingly, the fonts people use make `foo' look bad, because ' is
displayed as a neutral (vertical) quote and ` as a grave accent.
