I can't give you specific hints about building under Solaris 8 and
the native LDAP libs with Solaris 8 (AFAIK it's the Netscape LDAP

But I'd suggest that you check out the latest snapshot of
python-ldap and try to build that against a local copy of the
OpenLDAP 1.2.12 tree. Support for OpenLDAP 2 libs is work in
progress and currently very experimental.

If you have problems the most promising way is to come up with the
build log on this mailing list.

Ciao, Michael.
