Re: Having a tough time installing OpenLDAP 2.1.30

Howard, Thanks for your help. This fixed the make errors and compilation was successful.

That won't help. LD_RUN_PATH is not a variable that the Solaris dynamic
linker uses. Nor would it matter anyway, since his OpenSSL libraries are

This is a link ordering problem, because he's using static OpenSSL
libraries and has listed -lcrypto before -lssl. As any Unix programmer
knows, static libraries must be linked in a specific order, with the
libraries that reference external symbols listed before the libraries
that satisfy the references. libssl relies on libcrypto and therefore
must be listed before it in any link command.

Change LIBS to be "-lssl -lcrypto" and the problem will disappear.
Better yet, fix your OpenSSL install to build shared libraries.

Note that you shouldn't need to have "-lsasl2" explicitly listed in
LIBS; configure will look for it automatically.
