ppolicy "check_password" needs include files not available in install
I'm finding the ppolicy overlay very useful for implementing our
enterprise's password policies. The build process is a bit of a
I'm using a modified version of Michael Steinmann's check_password,
in order to reference structures like:
char *pPasswd, char **ppErrStr, Entry *pEntry)
char *szErrStr = (char *) ber_memalloc(128);
But those includes, and the files they include in turn, do not exist
in the installed LDAP include files. So in order to build this
little check_password.c program I have to untar and then ./configure
all the OpenLDAP source again.
I realize that check_password.c is not an official part of OpenLDAP
but would it be possible to put the include files that overlays like
this need into the installed locations so overlays wouldn't need to
get and config OpenLDAP all over again?
Or can you suggest other ways to get at the structure information
that 3rd party software like this needs to compile?
