Comment 1 Patrick Macdonald 2003-10-14 10:36:28 EDT
Actually, in RHL 9, bdb support was not built in (but it was in RHL 8.0).  There 
were some changes made to the spec file by individuals and it seems that the 
--with-berkeley-db portion was removed.  Bummer.

We'll have to fix this... thanks for letting us know.
Comment 2 Patrick Macdonald 2003-10-27 10:56:49 EST
Fixed.  I re-enabled testing on ia64 as well.  This will be available in rawhide
this week.
