RE: configure: error: Berkeley DB version mismatch

My comments:

1) Pls use /usr/ccs/bin/make (SUN's version) instead of
/usr/local/bin/make (I think this is GNU make), overwrite this in "env
.." prefix of the "./configure" command I suggest.

2) Yes Setting of LD_LIBRARY_PATH "CAN BE REALLY BAD" in /etc/profile,
BUT it is OK if u just set it in a script or shell session and it is
short lived. If u set it in "env LD_LIBRARY_PATH ... ./configure ..."
command line, it is forgotton after the completion of "./configure".
Anyway u can try twice, 1st without it and 2nd with it, and see if it
makes any diff.

3) I suggest u 1st try to configure without SASL, I use simple bind with
start_tls and avoid SASL, I suggest u remove SASL lib from the LDFLAGS
and CPPFLAGS. For my successful builds I did not use SASL.

4) gcc 3.3.2 is fine

5) I recommend everyone install latest version of libtool and/or
autoconf, I was just told openldap uses its own libtool BUT I do know
that if we were to continue building other SWs like NSS_LDAP and
PAM_LDAP, these latest library support tools are required or more times
in wasted in troubleshooting ./configure.

6) Could u try the following, explicting saying the API used will be

env MAKE=/usr/ccs/bin/make CC=gcc CPPFLAGS="-I/usr/local/ssl/include
-I/usr/local/BerkeleyDB.4.2/include" LDFLAGS="-L/usr/local/ssl/lib
LD_LIBRARY_PATH=/usr/local/BerkeleyDB.4.2/lib ./configure --enable-bdb
--enable-ldbm --enable-ldap --without-threads --with-ldbm-api=berkeley
--with-ldbm-module=static --with-ldbm-type=hash --enable-crypt
--with-tls --prefix=/usr/local/openldap

(Note: I can't find --with-ldbm-module=static in ./configure --help,
this option was from someone's advice, not mine, if it does not make any
diff. and it works, just fine, if not, pls don't ask me what it is)

Here they all are, I hope you can make something of it.
