last time I answered Quanah's testing call I simply downloaded the tgz from
gitweb and then compiled as usual.
This is the link I can find on gitweb:
Hope this helps

I'm not an git expert. But here's what I did following some git cookbooks:
$ mkdir /tmp/openldap-git
$ cd /tmp/openldap-git
$ git clone
$ cd openldap
You now have a clone of the whole repository including all branches with
the default branch set to 'master'. You have to switch the active branch to
Clean up everything left over from a previous build *before* switching a
$ make distclean
List all available branches:
$ git branch -a
michael@nb2:/tmp/openldap-git-**re24/openldap> git branch -a
# Switch branch giving it a local name 're24':
$ git checkout -b re24 remotes/origin/OPENLDAP_REL_**ENG_2_4
Branch re24 set up to track remote branch OPENLDAP_REL_ENG_2_4 from origin.
Switched to a new branch 're24'
Check which branch is active:
$ git branch
Especially you now see the file CHANGES which contains the release history
within the 2.4.x release series.
