Re: 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
nuisance tho.

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?

If you're building from source you're welcome to edit the Makefiles and install whatever files you want wherever you want. If you're using a binary distribution of OpenLDAP, contact whoever assembled the package for you. OpenLDAP only distributes source code, so this really isn't something for us to address.
