i fear it isn't.. the problem wasn't to compile the whole thing and get 
it running, (it's not a hard one, actually..) but to _keep it running_ 
for longer than just a few hours with "heavy" load. (where heavy is set 
to about 200 requests per second..) slapd just grows up to 128MB memory, 
and then "locks up".. next to do is a `kill -9`..
