 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 behind it. Past that, 4.3 was a disaster (so much so that openldap aborts if you try to build against it), and 4.4 and 4.5 seem okay, but I've not 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 it otherwise.


I need to expand on exact versions at http://www.openldap.org/doc/admin24/appendix-recommended-versions.html
