I was testing a preliminary 4.2 release (4.2.41) against HEAD/2.2 a couple
weeks ago and it worked without any issues. I haven't downloaded the current
4.2 release yet though. Looks like there are problems with it in OpenLDAP
2.1, at least, but I haven't seen that myself yet.

It would probably be nice to fix -llunicode's word-size dependencies first
