RE: Follow up: 2.1.4, solaris 8, fails to start

We're having a similar set of problems building 2.1.5,
and we are finding that we really don't want to become
subject-matter experts in the construction and tesing
of OpenLDAP. Is anyone out there aware of pre-compiled
OpenLDAP binaries for Solaris 2.7 and 2.8? We need
support for OpenSSL and SASL and we'd prefer a base on

Thanks in advance,

trying to build again, this time dropping the ldbm
stuff.  Because I
can't get any worse right now, I'm also trying
--with-tls --enable-wrappers.
(I already put tcp wrappers and openssl on the box). 
We'll see how that

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.  :(
