 i install my linux system from source since a decade now and never needed
 to install gdbm. it is also one of the worst choices for storing data
 because of a weak hash algorythm and data loss in certain situations. this
 may not be a problem to pulseaudio. but it sounds weird to me that a
 soundserver is enforcing the installation of a certain db. i refuse to
 install gdbm and thus refuse to install pulseaudio. can't you at least
 choose a db more widely used today? for example, sqlite is a must-have, no
 way around it. yes, it can do more you need but it is a neccessity
 provided on just every system running modern software and more sane
 (except of using SQL as feed).

 actually, if your needs are so soft, doesn't a plain file do it too?
