The tools directory is for development tools.
 This directory contains hard to find versions of tools used
 to develop OpenLDAP Software and/or Documentation. 
OpenLDAP 1 is no longer in development.

2.2 is still under development (though limited).

However, even so, I see little value updating the
autoconf 2.13.1 tarball on the FTP site.  Instead,
I'll just drop a copy of the patch in the directory.

When 2.2 goes historic, I'll move all the old tools
to an old subdirectory of tools.
