I've not checked whether it can still do it, but Movable Type *spit*  
certainly used to be able to use BDB for storage. It'll template your  
blog post into a static document which it dumps on the filesystem,  
which you then arrange to serve up. *Usually* that is static HTML, but  
you can spit out PHP if you swing that way.

MT is somewhat larger than Angerwhale et al, but it is at least a  
single big blob - including antique versions of CPAN modules, saving  
you installing them yourself - that you can dump in a directory and  
just point a web browser at to configure. It's very much like a PHP  
application in that way.
