I found the right forrest incantation to put the search box on the nav

This provides a convenient opportunity to restrict site search to just db.apache.org. So far
it has been set to apache.org and somebody complained. But since the change requires regenerating
all pages, it was best to wait until all pages needed to be regenerated anyhow.

Unless I hear objections or better suggestions, I'll go ahead and commit this change to the
web site Friday mid day (Pacific time).

btw, I printed off the new logo and taped it to the back of my laptop during ApacheCon last
week. Everyone loves it. Roger, your contribution is appreciated very much.
