Indeed, I should probably have sent this a separate mail, sorry.  The
diff was just to get db5 building with libc++.  A similar diff is needed
for db6, but before I start producing it, I would like to know if there
is any interest. :-)

Note the fixes are mostly trivial, just a renaming of a few identifiers.
If you would rather have me take it upstream, please let me know.
