Does anyone know where these RPMs (without db support) are coming

The -V option listing what is supported seems like a good idea --
although I don't see a quick and dirty way without adding another call
for plugins to register.

Something like AddFuncToVersionList(void (*func)) perhaps.

Till then -- note that upon executing, the db plugin currently lists
what it supports.

Look for a line like this:
  database: compiled support for (mysql postgresql)
