Description Alec Meyers 2010-11-30 03:06:50 UTC
According to the courier-mta documentation, courier can use either gdbm or berkeley db:

"The Courier mail server requires either the GDBM or the DB database library. GDBM is used if both are present. This option forces the selection of the database library." ( http://www.courier-mta.org/install.html#configure )

Is there any reason why the Gentoo ebuild forces gdbm to be used ( --with-db=gdbm )?

Reproducible: Always
