lib/libgnc-backend-sql.so will always be built.
libgncmod-backend-dbi.so will only be built it --enable-dbi is provided
when gnucash is configured.  The string I was asking you to search for
in libgncmod-engine.so is used to load the dbi backend at run time.  It
is only loaded if configure could find dbi/dbi.h (usually
in /usr/include).

I'll send one to you directly so that it doesn't clog the mailing list.
