I'm trying to compile samba 3.0.23d for use with ldap as backend.

The system is Debian Sarge fresh installed, all updates installed, and 
openldap-2.3.27 installed from sources.

I searched a lot but couldn't google out anythink that helped.

I sent this same mail jesterday with configure options for ldap, ld.so.conf 
and samba error.log but it was too long. So another time with less text.

Can anybody here help? It would be great!

Thank you very much.


samba configure:

./source/configure \
'--prefix=/usr/local/samba' \
'--sysconfdir=/etc' \
'--localstatedir=/usr/local/samba/var' \
'--with-configdir=/etc/samba' \
'--with-privatedir=/etc/samba' \
'--with-lockdir=/usr/local/samba/var/lock' \
'--with-piddir=/usr/local/samba/var/run' \
'--with-swatdir=/usr/local/samba/swat' \
'--with-smbmount' \
'--with-quotas' \
'--with-ldap' \


Configure aborts with this error:
