[DBD-SQLite] Things to do before the next production release

As a Makefile.PL, we aren't really supposed to be able to know how DBI
is implemented, or how it got there. We're just asking for the API.

I agree with the compiler feature point though, the errors we're
getting are mostly about no cc command at all.

Maybe we can just pull something similar to Module::Install's can_cc
command into the Makefile.PL
