This is a new system for me - RH RHEL Nov. 5 last year. It turns out I'd
compiled Openldap 2.1 with static libs too, without realizing - since I
hadn't been on RH 7.2 before that. RH has put 4.1 .so libs in /lib and
the .la libs in /usr/lib. Openldap found the 4.1 .la libs.

If it hadn't been for this thread, I'd never have realized.

That's what he wrote :)

Definitely. I'd never taken enough notice of the configure options. It'd
always worked out right before.

Please don't be offended; there was no offense intended. I sometimes
forget that not everyone has English as a native or near-native
language. I can cope pretty well with all that's thrown at me in
(correct) English, Dutch or any Germanic Scandinavian - but I'm be
completely at sea on German-language lists, don't know what to make of
them ;) Some of your countrymen are pretty harsh on other lists, but one
gets used to them ...



I wish that mailing-list people would stop CC'ing me.
Chances (95%) are that if they do, the CC will never
make it, anyway.
