The code is littered with tests like #ifdef HAVE_GMTIME_R, but there's no longer tests for gmtime_r() in configure. Is it time to cleanup a bit?


I note that OpenLDAP Software uses a single configure script to generate configuration information used for building both thread-aware and thread-unaware programs and libraries. Hence, special care must be taken the generated configuration information is valid for both purposes. In some cases, it's easier just to avoid the differences (such as by using (or not) certain system interfaces).

It likely would be better to have two (thread-aware/thread-unaware) or three (common/thread-aware/thread-unaware) configure scripts.
