You are right. Ubuntu deb seems to be OK.
I didn't even need OpenLDAP

It seems that all the parts needed are in the deb and there is no need to
recompile in this kind of simple cases.

I have my reasons to 'hate' IPv6. I know that it is coming, but just now it
is causing troubles.
We have a rather slow public part in our network, where our students can use
net without joining their private computers to the AD. Mostly they have 
either WVisva or W7 in their laptops. For some reason M$W is broadcasting
the IPv6 calls all the time. The public net is full of that kind of calls
and the net has no space for the real data. There is some modifications to
firewalls under work, which will block these M$W IPv6 calls.

Thank you for your comments.
