There's one other case, which is that if the package is using the RPC
interface, you're stuffed as far as the 4.8->5.1 upgrade notes seem to
say. I'm going to have to think about how to tackle this for
gridengine. I suspect I'm going to have to patch it to be able to use
berkeleydb locally but not in RPC mode.
