Currently, we always configure BDB to remove log files when it is done with them. This could be made subject to user control.

How to repeat:
Use BDB, watch log files get deleted after they are no longer in use.

Suggested fix:
Add a new server option, such as bdb_log_autoremove.

This should be made to be settable on the fly, as this is supported by BDB.

This is related to Bug #14655, which moves us to using DB_LOG_AUTOREMOVE instead of a custom mechanism for cleaning up the BDB log files.
