Note that the Netscape SDK and OpenLDAP libraries are
neither source nor binary compatible.  However, clients
of using either library can interoperate with any LDAP
server (using LDAPv2).

I believe both auth_ldap and PHP3 work fine with
OpenLDAP 1.2.  However, I usually build with

Likely a mismatched headers.  Make sure you are compiling
these tools for OpenLDAP and that they find the OpenLDAP
headers and libraries.

Sleepycat is not required to use threads.  However, if
you do you Sleepycat, be sure that it detects and uses
appropriate threading support.
