Re: change in behavior from 1.2.x to 2.x (was "Re: Schemacheck")

1.2.9 won't build on several of my glibc 2.2.2 machines.  In fact, it
looks like some of the Makefiles invoke make with the "-k" option
("don't fail on error"), and I got "everything" installed only to find
out that slapd didn't install.  I have tried many different
things... any clues?  Has anyone compiled any one of the 1.2.x
packages on glibc 2.2.2?

Also, is there any migration (1.2 to 2.0) documentation?
