You might just be causing yourself unnecessary problems by insisting on using the Sun libldap, I imagine
the Samba guys develop with openldap as this is what is referenced in their documentation.
I don't think there's any harm in having both openldap and sun libldap on the same system, I didn't need
to remove the Sun files. If you need the Sun versions for something else, just install openldap into

	thanks Andy.

Thanks for the reply. But my problem is not locating the libraries. It's
basically Sun's libldap vs. OpenLDAP's libldap (or other supported
libldap). As indicated in my previous email, the key error was:

Undefined                       first referenced
 symbol                             in file

ld: fatal: Symbol referencing errors. No output written to conftest

I checked the symbols in Sun's libldap, it doesn't seem to contain
ldap_initialize. So the question is how to bypass the checking of

Though I don't use the Solaris-packaged ldap libs (I am using OpenLDAP),
locating the libraries for Samba was a big problem.  I did a lot of
fiddling with compiler and preprocessor flags, including some which I
didn't think we should need; these mods are shown below.  (I put all my
config commands, by habit, into a script file, so I can annotate).
Obviously, your mileage will vary, but hopefully you can surmise
something about your required lib pathnames...

You'll see we also had problems with Solaris spinlocks, and with the xml
test (though we do have libxml2 installed), so disabled the test and
have had no further probs with the xml2 side of things.

We finally did get a good configure, but are now having probs with the
