[arch-dev-public] db6 rebuild dropped - new ToDo list

Due to the license change in db5 (MIT style) to db6 (AGPLv3) we drop
the db6 update and will keep db5 in core for now.

Berkeley db5 won't see much further updates if any at all. We should
check each package that now links to it if that functionality is
essentially required.

I'm going to remove all db bump related packages from staging repo.
I'm also going to revert the ToDo list to incomplete for each pkg for
checking if a pkg can be build without db support.

On the long run we should move db in a first step to extra
and maybe later drop it completely. So go on and fix svn trunk to the
old state or rebuild it to testing repo without db support wherever
possible without loosing important features and mark the ToDo list.
