Re: Install package

I am sorry if I was unclear. My question was not so much a matter of
install system per se, but rather what files go where. The information
regarding installation is not particularly easy to find from the
makefiles. I am rather well versed in Make but still consider that info
as obscure at best.
I was hoping that someone in this forum has a clear description of what
files I need to collect and where they are supposed to go.

The source is always the ultimate authority. It is unambiguous and irrefutable, and you should leverage this fact:

    make install prefix=/my/tmp/dir
    cd /my/tmp/dir; tar cf /tmp/openldap.tar .

Ando's original response was right on. This question doesn't merit further discussion on this list.
