Jehan Procaccia has been very kind in maintaining SRPMs that build
on RedHat Linux for more recent OpenLDAP versions here:


We are using back-bdb under OL 2.1.25 + BDB 4.2.52 on RedHat 9.0
built from Jehan's SRPM (with some minor local changes). The SRPM
included the most recent version of Berkely DB (with 1 patch),
and the spec file was configured to link BDB statically into the
slapd binary.

Also search the archives for posts about problems building OL under
RedHat Linux, as they may be relevant to you (even if the RedHat
releases are slightly different).
