I have some question about Debian builds of openldap. Maybe you can

Yeah, that's a major problem in using Debian's builds of BDB. You
want those options sent to configure when using BDB on Linux NPTL
I try to reconfigure and backport the bdb4.7 package to lenny. The above
mentioned mutex settings are now added.
The config statement in debian/rules is now:
CONFIGURE_SWITCHES = --prefix=/usr \
The build was successfull. Some warnings in the java-packages about
unused variables. I believe that doesn't matter.

No prob. :) You may have to adjust some settings in sysctl to do it.
Can you tell me, what I should adjust in sysctl.
I have seen that the Debian package maintainers have modified the schema
and ldif files of openldap. So, when I want to rebuild openldap, I
suggest that I must flag the build as non-free. At least in Debian
They use gnutls as ssl package. I've found some bad mails about gnutls
code quality. I believe that was in spring 2008. Should I build with
openssl instead ?
