Description of problem:
When compiling the openldap from SRPMS, libtool fails attempting to link with /usr/lib/libbind.a since no FC3 package provide any such file. Problem was resolved by removing from /usr/lib/libbind.la the following line:
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
2.Install src.rpm of openldap
Actual Results: libtool fails to link with /usr/lib/libbind.a
Expected Results: Either libbind.a should be provided as part of bind-libs or the libbind.la should not have a reference to it (such that libtool does a shared link)
The bind-libbind package DOES provide /usr/lib/libbind.a .
If it is not there, it was somehow removed from your system and
reinstalling the package should correct this.
But openldap should be compiled to use libresolv.a instead of libbind -
the openldap configure script incorrectly picks up libbind instead of
This openldap problem has been fixed with openldap-2.2.23-4, in FC4 -
downloading this src.rpm and building it or just removing the optional
bind-libbind package should fix your problem.
