Given that BDB is bundled with some distros we support building and
running against the system installed BDB, and that's the defacto when
the bdb repo is not in your environment. Some of us still use the forest
extension ;^) and an fpull will sync bdb even if not initially cloned.

We included a small footprint implementation of Berkeley DB, called
Restricted Data Store (RDS). It is a minimal build of Berkeley DB that
supports only b-tree access, and provides a simple Java interface to
support the functionality required by the runtime (Jigsaw will also use
the native interface).
