I am using Fedora 8, however I did install perl-devel after running OpenLDAP configure. I did what you described and that worked. Thanks again!

Am I missing a requirement? Perl and perl-devel are installed. Can anybody help me to solve this issue?If you look at configure.in, the compile command should include the output from perl -MExtUtils::Embed -e ccopts which I'd expect to include something like -I/usr/lib/perl5/5.8.5/i386-linux-thread-multi/CORE Your compile command doesn't. Maybe you ran OpenLDAP configure before installing perl-devel? If so try to 'make distclean' and then ./configure again. Or maybe your perl installation is still screwy, or you have two perl installation and are not using the one which includes your perl-devel module. If that doesn't help: splitting part of Perl out to a "perl-devel" package sounds like a hack specific to whatever your OS distro is, so it'd help to know what you are using. And likely the question needs to go to your distro's support rather than here.
