Description of Problem:
cyrus-saslauthd does not come with ldap out of the box.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

How Reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. try setting the saslauthd mech to "ldap" in the init.d file.

Actual Results:
saslauthd does not support ldap.

Expected Results:

Additional Information:
I recompiled the saslauthd rpm --with-ldap and installed it. It works great, but
 the reason for using 8.0 is so that there's less compiling in the future :/

Comment 1 Jim Richardson 2002-12-03 13:37:25 UTC
Same issue exists on 8.0 except when you attempt to recompile the src.rpm it 
fails due to a dependency on autoconf213.

Comment 2 Jim Richardson 2002-12-03 13:52:44 UTC
Well digging in the CDs I found the autoconf213 rpm, and suprisingly after 
installing it is seems to coexist quite nicely with autoconf-2.53-8. So I was 
able to recompile with the --with-ldap option added to the cyrus-sasl.spec

current Fedora Core release or Red Hat Enterprise Linux or comparable.
