Re: Is the openldap libldap library thread safe?

libldap_r is the version of libldap compiled with the reentrant #defines
(LDAP_R_COMPILE or something like that? I forget.) As far as I know, the
API is identical, although there's a chance a couple *_thread_* might be
exposed. I believe the define makes libldap use things like
gethostbyname_r and other things that you'd want in a multithreaded
