The man pages for certutil, pk12util, modutil, and signver still indicate the default database is dbm: not sql:. They sould be updated to reflect the current defaults.

This patch does 2 things:

  1. update certutil.xml pk12util.xml modutil.xml and signver.xml to reflect the fact
    the the sql database is default. Many of these also has examples of specifying
    sql:dirname which is now the default. I did not replace them with dbm:dirname since
    we don't want to encourage regressing back. The one exception is in the paragraph
    explaining how to get to the old database format.

  2. I ran make in the diretory to update the .1 and .html files generated from the .xml
    files. There are a number of old updates to the .xml files which haven't been picked
    up in their corresponding html or man page files. This updates are included in this
    patch.

It is really only necessary to review the changes to the .xml files, the rest were
reviewed when their patches were applied.
