Thanks, that worked! I am able to compile it now, but if I enable sasl, 
it also fails:

"Modules/LDAPObject.c", line 568: Warning: String literal converted to 
char* in formal argument format in call to 
_PyObject_CallMethod_SizeT(_object*, char*, char*, ...).
"Modules/LDAPObject.c", line 614: Error: Cannot use void* to initialize 
"Modules/LDAPObject.c", line 615: Error: Cannot use void* to initialize 
"Modules/LDAPObject.c", line 689: Warning (Anachronism): Formal argument

ldapcontrol**, ldapcontrol**, unsigned, extern "C" 
int(*)(ldap*,unsigned,void*,void*), void*) is being passed 

Sounds like the same thing.
