Re: ldap library link pb


Thanks for your help.

The proble came from my openldap libs : during installation, the "make depend" failed, and the "make" generates dynamic libraries.

This morning i rebuilt the right static openldap libs, and my program seems to link successfully with them.

note : under AIX, to run "make depend", i needed to set the MKDEP variable to <my path/build/mkdep.aix

I'm not sure if I understood your post right:  You have openldap libraries
installed and would like to link another program/library with them.  This
is the relevant part from my Makefile:

LIBS=-lc -lldap -llber -lssl -lcrypto

I was able to compile my program with both vac and gcc on v4.3 and v5.1.
The openldap libraries are static so I didn't have to do anything special
to get a program which includes the LDAP code (I suppose that that is your
objective).  If the libraries are shared objects on your computer, then
using the "noautoimp" ld option should help.  I guess that you should read
the ld(1) man page to get precise information about linking.
