python-ldap 1.10a3 won't work with OpenLDAP 2.x unless you apply those patches
that you refer to. (is that right?)

the current status of the development tree seems to be:
	* removing autoconf, in favour of python's distutils
	  (which is weaker at detecting what is there but slightly more
	   configurable and supposedly easier to build distributions with)
	* supporting OpenLDAP 2.* (but dropping support for earlier versions)
