It might not matter; on a closer inspection of the wiki, someone
already added the libdbi0-dev package as a requirement, which pulls in
all that's needed to compile, even without any of the particular
database libdbd-{sqlite3,pgsql,mysql} packages included...

HOWEVER, not having even tried the database backends, is one of them
preferred for any reasons or is it a tossup?
