2. It's my strong opinion that if someone unpacks a release tar.gz and
builds it running "make test" should not conflict with an already
installed version of /usr/lib/libl{dap,ber}*.
It's quite normal that you build and test before installing the next
release. Isn't it? Having a separate build system without any
pre-installed libldap is nearly impossible today. On openSUSE even the
software installation tool zypper has a dependency on libldap.

I regularly build OpenLDAP on 16 different boxes, covering 11 different OSes, 2 of which are OSX (10.4 and 10.5). I have never encountered this issue, even though all of those 16 boxes have the ldap libraries installed in /usr/lib. My files end up being linked correctly.
