I'm going to amend my previous comment to say that I followed the
instructions exactly including choosing to install libdbd-sqlite3

-- based on recent discussions on this list I ALMOST edited the wiki
to remove the libdbd-{sqlite3,pgsql,mysql} notation and insert just
libdbd-sqlite3 there -- squlite is becoming the new standard file
format and most folks would start experimenting with sqlite. the
libdbd-pgsql or libdbd-mysql libraries might be mentioned separately
along with some notes about those databases.
