clunky build bug

I checked out svn trunk onto a virgin ubuntu box today, and started
building. Our configure script couldn't find a sqlite library, but it
didn't throw an error. Consequently, I ended up hitting a bunch of
compiler errors later on. This is not cool.

We need to do one of these things:

(1) Decide sqlite is absolutely mandatory, and make configure throw
error if not found.

(2) Change our build system to avoid all libsvn_fs targets if sqlite
isn't found. (And warn the user.)

I'm in favor of #2, simply because we have a precedent. In pre-FSFS
days, our configure script would warn when BDB wasn't found, and
simply say "I'm not going to build anything related to libsvn_fs".
We've always had a policy that the smallest legitimate build target is
a network-only svn client.
