User-Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (X11; U; Linux i686; en-US; rv:1.1) Gecko/20020827

Description of problem:
The new package doesn't
build on RedHat 7.2 because it lacks support for db4.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1.rpm --rebuild postfix-2.0.6-11.src.rpm

Actual Results:  It doesn't build because db4-devel is missing.

Expected Results:  The package should have used db3-devel instead.

Additional info:

Of course, this is not a bug because the package isn't intended to build on
RedHat 7.x. However this small patch makes it build on 7.x and 8.x.
