	Thanks for your quick answer.  I would love to be at the latest
and greatest but it is such a pain to install everything.  Would I
simply just compile the latest version of BD from sleepycats and then
compile Openldap with the normal --configure lines?  I need TLS support,
slave replication, and BDB support.  Please point me in the right
direction for compile options and I will try it.  HA...I swear every
time you guys say to upgrade.  At least OpenBSD is doing a little better
than some of the other flavors out there ;).  Then when the new version
comes out in a couple of day is the upgrade easy? Just recompile?  These
are the kind of questions that make me stay away from compiling.  I do
agree with you however.


On to my un-answered question.  How do I register BDB so that OpenLDAP
will work on my OpenBSD system?  I have a feeling I will get the same
issue even if I compile it from scratch.  I looked in the BDB faqs on
the website for *BSD and all the answers seem to point to an older
version of the software.  The directories mentioned for OpenBSD do not
even exist.

OpenLDAP has to be compiled against BDB for database bdb to work.

One last thing.  Where do I get more information on checkpointing?  Is
it done by default.  I will compile the latest version.  I PROMISE!!!
