Do you know one that does? "man DB_File" will tell you some options like 
"cachesize", I tried to set them but it never made a difference. You can 
also use $LOW_MEMORY_INDEX=0, which requires more RAM on the one hand, but 
on the other hand doesn't access disk so much (unless your computer must 
start swapping).
