I don't know. Maybe someone has an advice on how to proceed with this.
The GAR recipe for bdb44 has been updated with 64 bit libs, but is this
version still needed? There are quite some dependencies listed:
This includes subversion and perl, both of which should get updates
to 64 bit long term (svn 64 bit is needed for files > 2 GB. I don't  
want to
discuss if this is a good idea, but we have a customer that needed
it and where I hand-build it).

Or should be officially drop 3.3, 4.2, 4.3 and 4.4 and just build 4.7?

Best regards
