bdb is a new and recommended backend type.  'make test' seems to want
ldbm.  If you are not going to use ldbm backend type, you can remove it
from the build.

Openldap 2.1.5 and both berkeley 4.0.14 and 4.1.24 build fine on Solaris 8
and 9 (Sparc).  I use gcc 2.95.3.  Unfortunately, I do not know why you
are not able to succefully build the latest version of openldap.  :(
