Oh, dang, I missed that last bit.

Did you use "--enable-syslog" as one of your configure options?  It is
supposed to be auto-detected, maybe it failed for some reason on your

My configure option is:

 # ./configure --prefix=/path/to/openldap-2.3.25 --enable-modules
--enable-backends=mod --enable-overlays=mod --disable-sql

and include/portable.h has the line:

 #define HAVE_SYSLOG_H 1

So it seems to detect syslog() properly.  Any other ideas?
