Building a backend.
Ok, I've embarked on my first serious attempt to hack OpenLDAP. I've followed
the examples and read the docs and UMich on building my own back-end. It all
seems straightforward enough until...
How do I get this thing to compile? I've looked through the config and
Makefile.in files. I don't really understand how they work, but I've searched
for every entry of "SHELL" and "shell" and added a similar entry for my backend
("orbit"). The makefile is created, but it never gets run. I get a message
that says something like "run configure with --enable-orbit". I did that, no
I've clearly missed something important. Can somebody give me a quick pointer
on the easiest way to compile my backend into slapd?
