first of all you should get the latest sources of  Berkeley DB and the 
two patches available. After installing them, you can build openldap.
On RHEL 3 you will have to export CPPFLAGS="-I/usr/kerberos/include", 
cause 'krb5.h' can't be found: that causes the above mentioned error.
Doing this, you will get a pretty fine working openldap, that is running 
very stable and performing on AS3.0. 
I'm now running 2.2.15 on RH AS3 for about 2 month without any problem.
