    sys-apps/man-db: add 2.10.0
    Now defaults to gdbm, but can use berkdb to switch back to that
    instead if desired.
    This doesn't change the default for anybody as USE="+gdbm" has
    been in profiles for a long time and we dropped USE="+berkdb" in profiles
    a while ago. Plus, when in doubt, the ebuild used to go for USE=gdbm when
    both were set. So, this is just a cleanup of the existing logic.
