+1 on #2. Also, it should be smart enough to "associate" the
correct header with the correct library. We don't want to link
against gdbm but include db1's ndbm.h header :)

If this means a 1.3.24 (and since we're tagged, it almost
assuredly does) then it does. No biggie. :)

Nope, no issue. We simply detect it and use it if required.
