(In Thunderbird 188.8.131.52 I attempt to remove incorrectly inserted quotes
and *try* to correct anathema-waking coding and formatting).
I checked the code and this happens because of the following check
if test ! -x /usr/sbin/.3 ; then
Nowhere in my test environment can I reproduce (or anything like it)
such a path. If you're in $tests, and after a successful build, whatever
it is, is testing for slapd, then slapd is in ../servers/slapd/slapd.
There's never any '.3' in /usr/sbin/, whatever happens, and never will be.
I get the error when I try to run the test as you noted above
AFAICS you never produced a successful build, but I could be wrong.
Anyone else care to help Taymour on his way? I give up ...
