problem testing LDAP


I'm in the process of setting up OpenLDAP on a PowerPC machine running yellowdog linux, and have run into a problem.

First installed version 2.7.7 of Sleepycat Software's Berkeley DB. Then I went through ./configure, make depend and make. All seems to be going ok, but when I cd into the tests directory and run make, I get the following error:

[root@mac1 tests]# make Initiating LDAP tests...
 Executing all LDAP tests...
 Test Directory: .
 Backend: ldbm
 Starting test001-ldif2ldbm ...
running defines.sh . ldbm
Datadir is ./data
Cleaning up in ./test-db...
Running ldif2ldbm to build slapd database...
./data/test.ldif: Too many levels of symbolic links
ldif2ldbm failed!
./scripts/test001-ldif2ldbm failed (exit 1)
make: *** [all-local] Error 1

Looking at the data directory within the tests directory shows that it's nothing more than a link back to itself (?)

Any ideas?
