Ok, just to stir things up a little bit more. I'm curious whether we
need "db" in the configuration of protocols, services, etc.
According to this page:
"/lib/libnss_db.so.X implements `db' source for glibc2"
On my machine at least, libnss_db.so.X does not exist. Please note that
its been many many moons since I've followed the books way of building
things, so if this file is present on a "properly" built plfs system,
please correct me.
So, if I follow correctly, the "db" target is broken anyway, so mabe we
should eliminate it from our current nsswitch.conf.
