And I would normally agree -- the debian test/main package section
only gives me OpenSSL 0.9.7e and OpenLDAP of 2.1.3

But the client wants to do this without rebuilding from source.

I myself love rebuilding things from source - and considering my
current project installs the self signed cert without error and then
simply hangs on even *small* openssl tests - I guess I will be forced
to build from source once more.

Such is the life of open source:  Once someone starts "re"building a
system from source they are typically stuck rebuilding all of it.
