DB-18.1.25 breaks postfix build.
|Reported by:||Owned by:|
I note that nobody else except homebrew (mac) are using DB-18. The problems seems to be the past relicensing for DB-6, see e.g. https://lwn.net/Articles/557820/.
Arch have 5 as part of their system (with one minimal patch to make it build), but they also have 4.9 with changes to provide unique names, and 6 in AUR (conflicts with system version).
The breakage is from:
|DB_VERSION_MAJOR == 5|
(DB_VERSION_MAJOR == 4 && DB_VERSION_MINOR > 0)
I will try a minimal fix, but I wonder if we should revert to DB-5.
