Regular buildslaves do not require sqlite: that's purely a buildmaster

The buildslaves that Dustin is talking about are part of the
metabuildbot, meaning they're running unit tests for Buildbot itself.
Part of these unit tests is to create and exercise buildmaster code, so
those tests require sqlite to be available. Therefore the handful of
metabuildbot slaves that we have need to have sqlite available, or those
tests will fail.

So only people who are volunteering buildslaves specifically to the
Buildbot project are affected.

hope that helps,
