> This patch (#1) removes the SunOS 4 LWP threading API support from OpenLDAP.
> SunOS4 LWP support has not been supported by Sun (now Oracle) in over a decade.
> Sun's records indicate the last patch was made to the SunOS 4.1.4 patch gate
> code base in 1999. The last major reelase was SunOS 4.1.3U in 1993, 4.1.1 in
> 1990, and SunOS 3.5 in 1988. There are known to be a small number of Solaris 2.6
> and 2.7 systems still running, but Solaris 2.5.1 or earlier are statistically
> very rare. Side note, Sun stops providing any support for Solaris 2.7 on August
> 15, 2008.
> Realistically speaking this code has likely not been in use in almost 10 years,
