The "update-smart-drivedb " configuration option is turned off in the
smartmontools Makefile.

CONFIGURE_ARGS= --disable-dependency-tracking \
                --enable-sample \
                --with-gnupg=no \
                --with-initscriptdir=${PREFIX}/etc/rc.d \
                --with-nvme-devicescan=yes \

What is the recommended method to update the drive database if this
option is off? Using FreeBSD 11.3-p7 amd64.
