It's unclear to me how this change is behavior might be due to
any of the minor changes between 2.3.3 beta, 2.3.4, and current
HEAD. libtool, for instance, is identical across these revisions.
I'm curious as to why OpenLDAP 2.3.4 suddenly started
linking against libltdl when the beta releases didn't do this,
Have you tried the beta release recently? Maybe it's your
system/environment/configure-options that's changed.
version of OpenLDAP 2.1, OpenLDAP 2.2, or any checkouts of HEAD I worked
with prior to OpenLDAP 2.3.4 being released did either.
Is there a particular purpose this linking serves? My libtool is in a
non-standard location, and so are the libtool header and library. slapd
being forced to link against this library makes it completely unusable
for me once it is compiled.
If you have enabled dynamic modules (--enable-modules) or
SLAPI (--enable-slapi), libltdl is required. It's been that
way for quite some time.
I started looking at this last night, and realized I had added
--enable-modules since I built 2.2. I guess I'll just have to live without
dynamic modules. Although when I hacked out the libltdl bits, OpenLDAP
built without complaint. I didn't get far into testing it though.
