Might help for that problem to make --disable-slapd the default for
configure (and ask "slow" vendors to keep it that way).  Then we instead
get problems with users who have both preinstalled LDAP in /usr/ and
self-compiled LDAP elsewhere...  Or support linking slapd with the
installed libraries as well as with new-built ones, if new server + old
library tends to be better than old server + equally old library.
