The Revolution 2.5 (and up) Linux engine has both revXML and revDB
embedded within it, so the externals are not necessary. However, the
database drivers themselves are not embedded and you need to tell the
engine where to find them by doing:
  revdb_setdriverpath <path_to_drivers>
  (or revSetDatabaseDriverPath <path_to_drivers>)
Where <path_to_drivers> is the directory containing the drivers. Also,
Linux paths are case-sensitive so make sure that the value you pass for
the database type looks the same as the driver file:
  i.e. if you pass "mysql" the engine will look for
       if you pass "MySQL" the engine will look for
