Nothing in the stock Makefiles honors the --program-suffix option. It seems
you're building from someone else's patched source. I suppose we could treat
your ITS as an enhancement request to implement this support, but personally I
find it easier just to install the whole thing into a different directory
tree. E.g., configure --prefix=/my/build ...

File an ITS? I'd assume we'd want this to work correctly.
I am building OpenLDAP 2.4.13 (on RHEL5 if it matters) and using the
--program-suffix option of configure so I can install this without
replacing Red Hat's version (this time).
What I'm finding though is that although the binaries have the suffix --
/usr/sbin/slaptest2.4 (for example). The slapd binary does not
understand that "slaptest2.4" should make it run as the slaptest tool --
and it executes as slapd.
Is this behavior expected (ie, using this feature, I need to patch the
tools array in servers/slapd/main.c to put the suffix on the char string
for matching purposes)?
I'm cool with filing an ITS, I just wanted to check that what I am
seeing was not the expected behavior before doing so. (for some strange
reason, I'd rather be called a fool on the mailinglist than in an ITS)
