Sorry, I refuse to answer further direct e-mails not coming from 
my customers. Please post further questions on the python-ldap-dev 
mailing list (Cc:-ed) so that other subscribers on the list can 
answer and learn as well.

Probably you're actually trying to build with the LDAP libs 
pre-installed with Solaris. That won't work. You have to edit the 
parameters above to reflect the position of your local OpenLDAP 
2.3.x or 2.4.x installation and avoid lib conflicts by other means.

Ciao, Michael.
