I don't know why, but odd version numbers of libdbh always turn out
broken someway :-(

No, it should not add new functions. All changes are to remove the
unnecessary stuff from dbh_config.h (now generated as Benny suggested).
The changes to dbh.c are because config.h needs to be included (this
file was part of dbh_config.h before). I'm also now using
xfce4-dev-tools to generate configure script.

I'll look into it at the moment.

It sets gcc options? That should not be. Configure should check whether
the compiler is gcc or not before adding the options. But they are
really not necessary, so I will remove. There's also a "#warning"
somewhere which is not too portable either, and will be removed.
