RE: ldapsearch

The weird thing it does is one you run ldapsearch with the host specified on
the command line it works fine but if it needs to get the information out of
ldap.conf it returns no such object. I have installed the pre-compiled symas
pkgs on this machine and there version of ldapsearch has no issues but when
I compile it myself I get that error. We have a third party app that also
core dumps and I think they might be related. My guess is openldap is not
getting installed correctly. The third party app and ldapsearch our the only
things not completely working. Solaris authentication and other apps have no

It won't, but ldd only shows the libraries if they are dynamically linked.
 If somehow you convinced it to link static, or it somehow found static
libraries to link against, it won't show.  If it's the wrong libraries by
some wierd ituation, you'd have problems.

Perhaps it is not a library problem.  If you could be more specific as to
what is going wrong, maybe that would help.
