(And is missing an external-source: hint to declare this!)

Previously, I said I'd look at db*/expat after I was done with PHP - PHP
is now in final stages of ITP, so I'm clear to proceed.

I'll take db* and expat if Gerrit still wants to pass them on (they were
on his maybe-keep list).

I could take libxml2* and libxslt if Yaakov didn't want them.

After I'm done with db* and expat, I could possibly consider gnutls if
it remains unclaimed at that time.
