--enable-big-db changes the format of the database files and so
shouldn't be changed lightly.  Only the very busiest servers need it.
It is usually better to run 2 or 3 smaller servers than single server
that will be busy enough to need it.

--with-db-memory is a patch for systems that don't have a good
getrlimit() system call.  dbclean and dccd already have too
many run-time args (with more coming for greylisting) to spend one
a patch of an optimization.
