It works because it finds a version of db in that location. It won't
work if there are multiple installations of db in the same path, or at
least, without the --with-dbm switch you have no guarantee that it
selects the correct version.

But yes, if db is installed in it's default path, it will work with only
specifying the location, since there obviously is only one db version
it can choose from.
