Re: make problem

That was it. Thanks for the quick response and keen eye.

As to how that option got there, I'll take the blame but I think I can exlain the frequency. In the INSTALL file that comes with the distribution, the '-Ddef' option is given in the example values for the CPPFLAGS environment variable. I left it there thinking it might be necessary, but I have no macros and should've looked up what the option meant myself. I'm lazy.

This was the first time I've run make (and crossed fingers) in a couple of years, but I have to hand it to the OpenLDAP distribution: it's almost never been so easy. Thanks again.
