I need to compile the lastest OpenLDAP version and I want to know what's
the recommended version of BDB, if there is any. The latest BDB is
4.6.21, but I want to hear some experiences.
BDB 4.2.52 with all of the appropriate patches has years of stability

used them heavily. 4.6 seems to hold the most promise after 4.2 if you
compile it correctly on NTPL systems as there is an annoying problem with
