Comment (by blair at macports.org):

 I would like to see all these ports use variants, +db44, +db45 and +db46.

 You never know when some other program that has some dependency on a
 particular BDB version and wants to use APR and we're on 4.6.

 Say foopackage comes out with dependencies on 4.7 for some new feature
 and we need to recompile.  Also, foopackage also links against apr.
 With the no-variant approach, you'd have to edit all your files to get
 this to work and the next sync would destroy those.

 Maybe putting a bdb version in etc/macports somewhere as a the default
 would be nice.
