I've got a similar list of dependencies but only subversion and
apr actually use BDB. The rest seem to be dependencies on apr.
I went a step further and set "WITH_BDB_VER=5" in /etc/make.conf and
proceeded to update. At the end, I still had db42-4.2.52_5. I
suspect it was because that neither apr or subversion needed updated.
I'm not sure if I should switch the origin of BDB for involved ports,
do forced rebuild of a few ports or if doing a recursive update is
needed. Some additional direction would be much appreciated.
My eyes glazed over trying to read the Wiki link to updating since
I don't know database vocabulary so you're not alone ;-)
