I added an option for this case before 6.0:

        + add --disable-db-install configure option, to simplify building
          cross-compile support packages.

So that should work...

Just looking at the differences in misc/Makefile.in, I don't see a change
in the behavior of install.data for this case anyway.

I noticed this evening that I overlooked updating the shared-library
versioning in the "VERSION" file (because that's done via a script...),
and will make a short patch this evening.
