Re: how to compile recent openldap on Centos 5.5
FWIW: I'll be moving to these packages in the bear future. I especially like the src.rpm file - after installing it, I was able to modify the configure directives to build overlays as modules vs compiled in (fixes some Solaris - as a client - difficulties) before using rpmbuild. It'll tell you what devel packages you need.
Servers are currently using compiled from source - which was neither fun nor easy do to 64 bit lib difficulties when I was doing this. And when I was doing this, IIRC, there weren't any 64bit packages available from ltb.
It didn't like me setting sysconfdir to /etc rather than /usr/local/openldap/etc, but hey - if it bugs me /that/ much I can just as easily symlink the dir.
The berkeley db package works well. Not having to recompile that makes life easier too.
