I did not want to change the default behavior of ndb support, which is
currently disabled by default. That accounts for the bulk of the inverted
configure.ac logic in the patch(es).

So this series assumes --enabled-bdb and --disable-ndb, unless otherwise
specified. It will fail configure if bdb is enabled and the dependencies
(internal or external) are not satisfied, or if no database backend is enabled.

I think I should leave it to the ndb developers to determine when ndb is ready
to be enabled by default.
