(Answer) (Category) OpenLDAP Faq-O-Matic : (Category) OpenLDAP Software FAQ : (Category) Installation : (Answer) How do I force LDBM to use of GDBM?
Note: back-ldbm is deprecated in favor of back-bdb and back-hdb.
If you want to require use of GDBM, you must say so using the --with-ldbm-api option.
./configure --with-ldbm-api=gdbm

If you have installed GDBM such that its headers and libraries will not be found automatically by the C translator and linker, you will need to specify additional include and lib search directories.

You will also need to disable the berkeley db with the option --disable-bdb Note also when configuring the slapd daemon you will use the db option "ldbm".
