Yes, no problem.

>From Libgda's POV, there should not be any difference (even though the
embedded SQLite is probably more tested, by me at least). For Linux
distributions, using a system SQLite is probably better since it
allows one to install updates to the SQLite package, when the same
update would be missed if the embedded SQLite is used (provided the
system SQLite is compiled with options which satisfy Libgda, which
imposes some constraints on the system SQLite). On the other side
using the embedded SQLite makes one less dependency.
