Many ports do something like check whether WITH_BDB_VER is defined to 
something in order to register a properly dependency.  If you can figure out 
which versions of BDB are supported with your software, then you error with a 
warning if too old a version is chosen, or you can do something like choose a 
reasonable default value if none is already set....
