The solution to this problem was to look at the linking of the PADL
/lib/ binary.  It turns out that when compiling the module,
the configure script couldn't find the BerkeleyDB lib.  Since it didn't
yell at me, I didn't have any clue.

Upon inspection of an `ldd /lib/`, the problem was apparent.
I reconfigured, compiled, copied the new binary over, and, voila.  Part of
the problem was that I installed the Companion CD's Berkeley lib, which
installed to /opt/sfw/lib.  configure then couldn't find the library
because of the non-standard path.  I think it should have complained,
