I think that we should get a "easy" way to know if db3 / db4 / db41 / 
db41-nocrypto is installed during the port generation.

Idealy a


with <something> can be : 3, 4, 41, 41-nocrypto can help to get the 
good dependency with all db<x> ports users.

One thing I didn't get a clue is how to detect the current installation 
of a db<x> package (a clean, neat, and if possible automagicaly way) ?
