I'm CCing bug-gnucobol because Simon has asked for feedback from testers,
and therefore I don't want to discuss things in private with you,
excluding him from the audience.

Citing Simon's steps for testing:

  2 check DEPENDENCIES for the mandatory (mostly gcc + gmp or mpir) and
  optional dependencies (berkeley-db, cjson, libxml2, gettext)

Since it's an optional dependency, I expect the configure script to
succeed if that dependency is not present.

When "make check" failed, it told me to send a mail to bug-gnucobol.
If the GNU Cobol team doesn't want to receive these mails there, they
should change the output of "make check" when it fails.
