There are configure switches to build without Berkeley DB.
Note that sqlite in RPM "works", but is not "supported" largely because
there's no known advantage to using sqlite.
The main flaw with sqlite is the SQL schema, which is not flexible
enough to be useful outside of RPM itself, and so the usual reasons
for using SQL onto a relational database for easy access simply
do not apply.
Note also that the schema used in a rpmdb is about to change
incompatibly, and only conversion tools, not "legacy compatibility", will
be supplied. So far there is no work underway on sqlite for the changed schema.
