Description of problem:
If e-d-s is built on a machine which supports NPTL (which covers all
our build machines), then the included copy of libdb requires NPTL.
Unfortunately, if the resulting package is run on a machine which
doesn't support NPTL (which can be simulated by setting
LD_ASSUME_KERNEL=2.4.19 , or any value below 2.4.20 based on how our
glibc is set up), then the attempt to call env->open in
addressbook/backends/file/e-book-backend-file.c will fail,
and you get a "Error Loading Addressbook" dialog.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. export LD_ASSUME_KERNEL=2.4.19
2. ensure e-d-s isn't running (watch out for panel clocks)
3. restart evolution within this environment, try to open local
Actual Results: "Error Loading Addressbook" dialog
Expected Results: Should be able to open it.
