The patch is now merged, r1245. I modified it slightly, though. I
updated the configure snippet to correcly show that GDBM is the default
and DBM is just an alternative.

BTW: If this patch is activated all third party programs making use of
the service type database need to be patched seperately (Except when
they are written using python-avahi). I don't see this as a problem
however, since I don't know of any third party software doing that.
