Yes, so there are two potential issues - the unixodbc shared library seems to 
be statically linked with an older version of libltdl. I didn't run into this 
problem on my build because I don't have that odbc library. Anyway, due to 
the link order of the libraries, the lt_dlopen in this library gets used 
before the linker resolves to the system's libltdl.so, and it seems that this 
version of lt_dlopen doesn't automatically export the symbols of modules that 
it loads.

I'm guessing the reason this is a problem in 2.3.33 and not in 2.3.32 is 
because there is a new dependency in 2.3.33 between back-meta and back-ldap.

The other part of this is that the slapd binary should not be getting linked 
against -lodbc when back_sql is built as a module.

Although, if back-sql is built statically, and other backends are dynamic, 
this problem may still crop up. It seems that fixing -lodbc would be required
