Whilst compiling an application against libraries built from CVS, we are finding
that configure breaks with the following message. Bert Vermuelen (bert@biot.com)
identified a workaround (see below), but I am wondering if Luke has any plans to
maintain this work, or should the two references to 'dnssrv' be removed from the
Makefile.am until further steps have been taken to resolve it :

The source for this application is on CVS at

This seems to be related to Luke Howard's DNS SRV patches to
I didn't dig too deep, but deleting all references to dnssrv.c in
libraries/libldap/Makefile keeps it from compiling that code in,
and gives
you a usable library.
