The static linked "native" build with external db-5.3.15 is now in
the "LION_for_henri" waterfall at

The same "tweaks" to achieve the build:

	1) db-5.3.15 installed into /usr/{include,lib}/db53 and
		cd /usr/lib
		ln -s db53/* .
	The better approach would be to specify include/library paths using
	but its easier to create the symlinks then chase all possible installations
	of Berkeley DB.

	2) Latest AutoFu tools from MacPorts are used by symlinking into ${HOME}/bin
	and used for "./devtool static" like this in devtool.conf:
	    export PATH
	    %configure \
	        --verbose \
	        --prefix=/usr \
	        --disable-shared \

	The better approach would be to upgrade
	with --prefix=/usr instead of symlink'ing into MacProts /opt/local. Again
	it is easier to create symlinks into ${HOME}/bin then to try to deal with the
	consequences of the AutoFu upgrade.
