1) minor quibble (not a showstopper): I have a (very) new version of 
libtool on my system, and "tag inference" support has been dropped -- 
this, coupled with some other esoterica means that libtool complains 
when it tries to link the DLLs.

It really boils down to ldap defaults to using 'cc' as the compiler, but 
libtool expects 'gcc'.  By modifying the buildscript:
    CFLAGS="${MY_CFLAGS}"   \
+  CC=gcc CXX=g++          \
    ${srcdir}/configure     \
everything works fine, because now ldap "thinks" that gcc is the 
default, too.  This is only a problem with very new libtools.

2) other than than, rebuilding from -src package was fine.

3) During my rebuild, my ${instdir} contained the following files that 
were not included in any package.  Was this omission deliberate? (see 
especially the /var/ directory structure...)


4) ran test suite...all tests passed for both bdb and ldbm backends

5) installed, etc -- OK.

Good to go, assuming resolution of #3 above.
Wait -- from your README, I see the following:

Initial release

These are just the LDAP clients and libraries from the openldap package.
Although the LDAP servers (slapd and slurpd) seem to run fine I'm not 
willing to contribute and maintain them. If somebody wants to step in 
please mail to the list.

Okay, I consider point #3 addressed.  So, good to go as is.  For the 
NEXT release, please update the build script as detailed in #1.
