Compiling openldap on Solaris hosts

Building OpenLDAP on Solaris hosts that use /opt as their software repository can sometimes be a chore. In case anyone finds this useful, here is the procedure I use:

$ LD_LIBRARY_PATH=/opt/openssl/lib:/opt/BerkeleyDB/lib:/usr/sfw/lib:/usr/lib

$ export LDFLAGS=”-L/opt/BerkeleyDB/lib -L/opt/openssl/lib”
$ export LDFLAGS

$ export CPPFLAGS=”-I/opt/BerkeleyDB/include -I/opt/openssl/include”
$ export CPPFLAGS

$ configure –prefix=/opt/openldap-2.3.24 –enable-bdb –with-tls –enable –monitor –disable-ipv6

$ make depend && make
