If you're referring to the "db2" KDC plugin, the only symbol it  
exports is a table of (mostly) pointers to functions to be used by  
the KDC.  The "libdb2" library isn't available any more, as that  
library is now part of the db2 back end (the only thing we support  
that uses it), and we don't export its interface symbols.  (I don't  
think we want to be in the business of supporting it as a generally- 
used database interface.)
