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

If you're building from source you're welcome to edit the Makefiles and
