The current state of ax_berkeley_db_cxx.m4 does not find berkeley db on a
freebsd system. Here's how a bdb install looks on my system:


The macro didn't find it, because it only looked for:


So, the supplied patch adds support for this. There's a flipside though, it's
slower now since it checks more combinations.

Besides, there's also a bug left in the macro: if you specify a minimum
version number consisting of just one digit, it fails, because:

echo 4 | cut -d. -f2

echo 4 | cut -d. -f3

I'm not sure why. However, because of this it looks for 4.4.4, which is not
what I want if I specify "4". So, it should at least be noted in the
documentation that one has to specify a full version number such as 4.0.0 (in
which case it works as expected)
