If you offer any info publicly as an utter truth, and it is patently 
incorrect, then I reserve the right to call it "rubbish". When I have
done just that before, I have, quite rightly, been slapped down and have
learned much from the experience.

Preface it with "AFAIK", "IIRC" or a similar abbreviation.

To keep on topic, my experience after having compiled on RH Linux for
several years, is that as far as Openldap is concerned, LD_LIBRARY_PATH,
although the variable exists, often doesn't work in practice and the
directory path has to be entered into ld.so.conf and ldconfig run.
Having to use LD_LIBRARY_PATH at all is, for me, an admission that I'm
doing something wrong :)
