unfortunately, RPM is of no help to me. i am trying to set it up so i can 
do development work on the Zope LDAPLoginAdapter and LDAPUserManager on my 
OS X-based powerbook while i'm abroad. i would need patches for the source,
  i already got OpenLDAP 2.0.11 running successfully.

and no, this is not a combo i would use for "production", it's just so i 
can work away from my development servers ;)

ZopeLDAP development has pretty much ended. jeffrey hasn't worked on it in 
a while and us unwilling (and has no time) to continue it. if i had time i 
would consider keeping it alive, but at this point i really don't.

there is a couple other LDAP products for zope that i know of:

- LDAPLoginAdapter: my own product. active development, will be combined 
with the LDAPUserManager into a single LDAPUserFolder product at some point

- LDAPUserManager: my own product. active development, will be combined 
with the LDAPLoginAdapter into a single LDAPUserFolder at some point

- LDAPAdapter: ross lazarus' and soren roug's LDAP-based user folder. i 
think development has pretty much ended.

i do not know about any ZClass integration. i personally do not use 
ZClasses at all, only file system-based python products.
