Re: autoconf under openldap-2.1.8

Thanks for your response, Kurt.

What I am trying to do is to build openldap2.1.8 under Tru64 Unix. During configuration I ran into the following error:

494773:./conftest: /sbin/loader: Fatal Error: Cannot map library libdb-4.1.so

The error happened when it is checking on Berkeley DB thread support. I thought there is a patch to solve this problem :


which needs to modify the file openldap.m4 under build directory. In that case,  my understanding would be that I will have to run autoconf to regenerate the configure script. Have I missed anything or is my understanding not right? Thanks for your help.

Why? Installers of OpenLDAP Software are not expected to run autoconf or otherwise muck with the build system. That requires special tools and a lot of specialized knowledge.

Does anyone have any idea what might be going on? Thanks.

You are likely using the wrong version of autoconf.

PS: 2.1.8 is outdated.
