I had an issue with the ksmutil that I would like to document here in 
case someone else will get the same issue.

I had the sqlite3 libraries installed (which is an separate package in 
Debian/Ubuntu), but not the sqlite3 commandline tool.

OpenDNSSEC was compiling without error.

However when I tried to initialize with ksmutil, I've got the following 


# /usr/local/opendnssec/bin/ksmutil setup
*WARNING* This will erase all data in the database; are you sure? [y/N] y
SQLite database set to: /var/opendnssec/kasp.db
not found
Could not call db setup command:
/var/opendnssec/kasp.db < 


The path of the sqlite3 binary seems to be hardcoded into hsmutil at 
compiletime. Installing sqlite3 after compilation did not work, 
OpenDNSSEC had to be recompiled.

It would be useful to have a check in the configure script for the 
sqlite3 binary, so that the configure process stops if the binary is not
