I'd like to be informed on your progress on those three packages. At least
some logs would be nice.

Yes but that's kind of to be expected. db1 is so old it's not standards
compliant anymore. I have db-2.7.7 and db-4.0.14 installed here and both
work flawlessly, I had db3 for a while as well until I didn't needed it
anymore and removed it. So I think we're ok with the berkeley db issue,
they do work.

Koffice is kind of an important one, but I also have something that if one
package doesn't compile, but something else does which may give you the
same functionality, it won't stop me from upgrading. Let's see if
OpenOffice compiles properly. That would be a nice test.
