I wasn't aware that it was linked so tightly to the db version.

I would prefer to stick with stable releases, which is why I was using
2.3.11 in the first place.  I dropped back to Berkley 4.3 and was able
to compile and run.

I had some people tell me that Berkley 4.3 is not recommended with
OpenLDAP for performance reasons.  They suggested that I stick with
4.2.52.  Any comments on that?
