Description of problem:
Prior to httpd-2.0.46-56.ent, you included mod_auth_ldap in the standard build. As of this release, you 
have silently dropped it. I would like to request that you turn it back on by default. While many could 
argue the differences between mod_authz_ldap and mod_auth_ldap, mod_auth_ldap supports multiple 
ldap servers in the config and therefore provides a level of redundancy that authz does not. If it can not be 
put back in, could changes like this at least be noted in the errata.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
httpd-2.0.46-56.ent

How reproducible:
Always

Steps to Reproduce:
1. install/query httpd package

Thanks for contact us.  I note you filed this against Red Hat Enterprise Linux 4
not 3; this may be the source of your confusion.

The RHEL3 httpd package has never included mod_ldap and mod_auth_ldap (they were
not deemed to be production-ready at the time the RHEL3 shipped).  The RHEL4
httpd package does include both these modules.
