You're right.  We should not provide support for GDBM, because it's GPL
and not LGPL as I would have assumed.  So apr_dbm_gdbm.c should also be
GPL, which means APR-util as a whole would have to be GPL, etc.

It's starting to look like we need a separate repository for "addons" that
are GPL-infected and thus must be distributed separately and downloaded

This $!@% sucks.
