When I first tried to compile python-ldap it behaved exactly like this.
Actually I do have a workaround, but it is not anchored in the autoconf
scripts, so you have to do it by hand.

--- cut from the logs ---

I startet vi on configure, skipped to line 1403 and replaced



LIBS="$ac_func_search_save_LIBS -lldap -lresolv"

After rerunning configure and make everything worked as it should.

--- cut ---

This should do. is after that recognized as "not needed", but
do not worry about, because it still links correctly.
