You would need a lot of information to make that determination (host,  
port, db driver, db name, user, password; i.e., the entire connection  
information, and there is no 'standard').

You might just ask a simple question in Makefile.PL as to whether  
biosql is installed or not, similar to the DB::GFF tests.
