Where does one typically acquire the mdb_stat binary for use with openldap?
It appears to be part of liblmdb. openldap includes a bundled copy of
liblmdb, but does not actually build mdb_stat. Is the intention for
distributions to have a separate package for liblmdb, which would include
mdb_stat, which one would then install to acquire it (even though the
library isn't needed for openldap itself)? I can obviously just compile it
myself :), but plan to open a bug with my distribution (Gentoo) to see about
making it available, and I'm not sure whether it would be better to compile
the one within openldap and install that as part of the openldap package, or
create a new package for liblmdb. Given it is still under relatively early
development, would it be better to install the bundled one as ol_mdb_stat or
something like that, to make sure it corresponds to the version actually
used by the installed openldap?  What are other distributions doing?
