Hi Julio,

When I increased the debug level I saw your problem is caused by failure to load the
back-ldbm module. The module had some unresolved dependencies. A rebuilt of the module linked
with the proper libraries solved the problem in make case. I did:
 gcc -g -O2 -shared -o libback-ldbm.so *.o -L/opt/testbin/openldap/lib -L../../../libraries/
-lavl -lldbm -lldif -lldap_r -llber -llutil

Your problem clearly indicates that the backend Makefiles need rules to build the modules,
doing it by hand is no fun.
Also it indicates failure to load a module may better be a fatal error. That way it will be
easier to spot problems like these. Maybe it should be configurable: e.g. failure to load a
module with non exportable crypto should not be fatal, whereas failure to load a backend
should be.
