I wish that people would stop CC'ing me. Chances (unless they have a
well-lubricated crystal ball) are that if they do, the CC will never make it,


You are always willing to help, so I won't comment on your failure to state
details of system, etc (yes, I know it's Solaris X, but *nevertheless* - others
might not).

But I would like to ask a couple of questions, since these have to do
with your blithe statement of "it works for me", for which answer on
this list I personally have been (private mail) slaughtered.

My "bottom line" occurs below, so please consult that before
slaughtering me in like manner. Including my system configuration, for
the umpteenth time.

O.k. You have BDB .so libraries, congratulations ;)

Please give details of your options to ./configure. A couple of things
in your ldd output have nothing whatsoever to do with Ace's or my Linux,
so they are useless to both of us. The specific Solaris bits I
personally know a bit about, from my Solaris days, plus how Sun's
collective minds work (namely just as often "XOR", as not - no
consequentiality about Sun, as opposed to Linus Torvalds).

Why is this here? Mine is in /usr/local/BerkeleyDB.4.2/lib. Why did you
feel it necessary to change the location? (Yes, I've now made DSOs work
for Openldap 2.2.5, so this is not a complaint; I just need to know

The rest of your ldd output I understand, including the specific Solaris
links - *which* Linux does not have - I *do* know why it does not. Many
Linux people on this list do *not* know - why should you assume that
they should?

I've now compiled Openldap 2.2.5 for shared BDB libraries, run 'make
test' and 2 x 21 tests ran without error. I shall now do 'make install'
and it will work, as it did with static libraries. From now on, each
time Sleepycat produces a patch, it will be sufficient to patch my BDB
source and install *that*. I will not have to recompile Openldap, run
the tests and reinstall it. This will save me fists full of time and
money. Also, I will post respectively fewer "stupid" questions.

Again (do please remember that the followin does what I want, and that
I am not asking for help; simply commenting on inadequate answers):

OS/distro: RH RHEL3
BDB 4.5.52 + 2 required patches
Openldap 2.2.5
Cyrus SASL2 2.1.15
