Comment (by dj at linuxfromscratch.org):

 Excellent analysis William.  Thank you very much for this.  The GDBM
 change will have to wait.  While BerkelyDB is overkill for man-db, adding
 another package to the base is not desirable, but a swap of packages is
 very desirable.  We'll need to see if we can kill arpd in iproute2 again
 (or if somebody has hacked it up to use GDBM). Perl also will utilize
 BerkelyDB, but I don't know what it is for, or if GDBM can replace BDB's
 functionality for Perl.
