Noting for people that I did a fresh compile on Centos 4 and 5 tonight of 1.6.2
with apr 1.3.5 and apr-util 1.3.7 and if you specify --with-berkeley-db then
configure fails because it can't find any Berkeley libraries at link time.

The cause appears to be this change in apr-util

   *) Introduce DSO handling of the db, gdbm and ndbm drivers, so these are

which causes no -ldb-4.6 to be given by apu-1-config.

So the two solutions are to pass an argument to --with-berkeley-db, which I did,
or pass --disable-util-dso to apr-util's configure.
