Re: Which OS

I don't think the ditro matters, but I would recommend controlling the
openldap and dependency builds (berkley db, perl, whatever) yourself
so you don't have to worry about which distro does what.

Actually, I would recommend this for any production application. 
Relying on OS vendors to keep up with applications is a dumb policy.

p.s. NetBSD is better than any linux distro.  ;)
