The MDB database library is not currently present in FreeBSD.  It can be used by a growing number of software packages, such as OpenDKIM, OpenLDAP, and Postfix.  It is a preferable alternative to BDB as it uses a completely free license (BSD) and also has significant performance improvements over BDB.
