Re: Build Problems for 2.1.13 with Win2K/Cygwin (ITS#2333)

I've updated HEAD not to send (or receive) this extra message as
it doesn't provide for interoperability with implementations not
expecting this message to be sent or received.

As you noted, specifying --disable-local works around the problem
by not attempting to build ldapi:// support.
