   Please advice on the recommended suite of  development tools.
I have never hada problem building OpenLDAP on Solaris 2.6. I do suggest that
you get the latest recommended patches as there are some important threading
fixes in there.

I have gcc 2.95.1 and GNU binutils installed which helps. I am currently running
OpenLDAP 1.2.7 with BDB 2.7.7 and it is FAST even on a sun4c machine. I have it
compiled with support for pthreads at the moment and have not seen any problems
(despite the warnings).

I could send you some binaries if that would help.
