 Changes with APR-util 1.3.0
 
+  *) Stop trying to link against GDBM by default.  To enable use of GDBM
+     users must now explicitly pass --with-gdbm to configure, since GDBM
+     is licensed under the GPL.
+     [Garrett Rooney]
+
   *) Fix VPATH builds, and symlink builds where apr and apr-util
      reside in parallel as symlinks to directories with more explicit
      names, e.g. apr-1.x and apr-util-1.x.  This solves various breakage
