hi guys,

a couple days ago there were some posts indicating that python-ldap does 
indeed build against 2.0.11.

i just tried building a python-ldap head CVS checkout against 2.0.11 and 
it stops with the well-known...

checking for library containing ber_free... -llber
checking for library containing ldap_open... no
checking for ldap_open... no
configure: error: Couldn't find LDAP library

can anyone confirm what the status is vis-a-vis OpenLDAP 2.x (or just 2.0.
11)? the postings led me to believe that no extra patches were needed at 
this point. if they are, can someone point them out? :)
