dbd does this:
    APR_REGISTER_OPTIONAL_FN(ap_dbd_prepare);
    APR_REGISTER_OPTIONAL_FN(ap_dbd_open);
    APR_REGISTER_OPTIONAL_FN(ap_dbd_close);
    APR_REGISTER_OPTIONAL_FN(ap_dbd_acquire);
    APR_REGISTER_OPTIONAL_FN(ap_dbd_cacquire);

APR_RETRIEVE_OPTIONAL_FN(one of the functions above) should give you
NULL if DBD is absent.

The two macros are declared in apr_optional.h.
