My eventual goal is that folks using a Ubuntu or Fedora system would
have Samba4 'just work' with the packaged OpenLDAP.  I can of course
lobby them to get their packages updated to build from contrib, but it's
easier if it's just in there.=20

Similarly, when I ask folks to configure with 'OpenLDAP HEAD' in the
short term, it is of course easier for me if everything is already in

But this is your project, not mine, and I am happy with whatever we can
make work.=20
