Alas, this is the case.  If db2 exists in either libc or libdb, then
the db1 functions will be only wrappers for versions of the db2 calls
with defaults for the new options.  The only way to obtain db1
compatibility would basically be to ship db1 with apache - and that I
think would be just TOO hideous a hack.
