Sorry for the confusion. Still, expect issues with RPM+SEMANAGE (if enabled/used).

Using WITH_SQLITE is tricky because there are 2 libraries with identical
symbols but different implementations and you will have to ensure through
linkage whether dbsql or sqlite3 is intended. The choices is exclusive …
but there is likely nothing doing configure that ensures only one.

The issue will show up with embedded interpreters and loadable modules.

I’ve been using the dbsql for embedded sqlite3 testing, and ignoring sqlite3.

And — if using RPM with db-6.1.26/db-6.2.23 there is a patch that is needed.

I’ve tried to send that patch a couple of times: its now documented in INSTALL in
cvs on the -r rpm-5_4 branch.
