Time to move on to the next rebuild!  This time it is for db-5.1.

There are the following soname changes:
   libdb-4.8.so -> libdb-5.1.so
   libdb-4.so -> libdb-5.so
   libdb_cxx-4.8.so -> libdb_cxx-5.1.so
   libdb_cxx-4.so -> libdb_cxx-5.so

It is a relatively small rebuild of 39 packages.

I never got around to the db-5.0 update but that is a good thing as many 
pieces of software check for a db major version >= 4 and minor version 
 >= 1 when they just want db>=4.1...  Now we have db-5.1 we do not have 
to fix that stupidness.   As always, more evidence that laziness pays off.

I have pushed the db update to [staging] and will work on the rest of 
[core] later tonight (unless someone beats me to it...)
