apr_dbd.c would be linked into a library called libapr-db.  Any consumer 
of the DBD API will be adjusted to link in this library as well as 
libapr, e.g. by using something like "apu-2-config --modules=db".

If you build the DBD backends as DSOs, they are built as DSOs and are 
loaded at runtime exactly as currently.  If you link them in, they get 
linked into libapr-db and otherwise everything works exactly as
