I'm currently trying to upgrade an OpenLDAP package for a openSUSE
The original package links slapd with libwrap which made sense in former
on systems without local host firewall mechanisms.
Maybe even with firewall _mechanism_, some people may prefer using tcp
wraapper instead. Still many products and consultants claim that firewalls have
to be disabled 8-(
If libwrap does not have a major performance impact I'd keep it
for sake of backward compability.
But AFAICT if slapd is linked with libwrap the TCP wrapper is always asked
whether a connection is allowed or not. One cannot disable it by slapd
So the question is: How big is the performance impact?
As you are building anyway, why not do a simple performance test as part of
your package testing?
