I wonder what's considered best practice for building OpenLDAP and lmdb packages e.g. for a Linux distribution.
Fortunately lmdb seems to be leveraged by more and more other software. So Linux distributions start to ship lmdb libs and tools as separate packages.
1. Do I have a chance to build OpenLDAP against those packages? Which releases have to be aligned?
2. Or should I link back-mdb statically into slapd when producing OpenLDAP packages? This would probably also require to build separate version of the mdb tools.
Of course personally I'd prefer 1.
