patch to databases/db5

The src tree is splitting 32-bit arm support into 'armv6' and the new 'armv7'.  This patch adds armv7 support.  It should provide no regression on any existing architecture.

Mark, I approve of the patch. Please go ahead and commit.

The only corner case appear to be specific ARMv6+ on FreeBSD 10.x or old 11.x, but I'm not sure if it's worth looking into (we can't backport the patch from db6 due to the AGPLv3, we'd taint db5) - anything else should be covered.

Committed, thanks.

AFAICT anyone wanting to use arm will need to be on a recent version of -11, or more likely, -current, so I don't think there's enough to worry about here.
