So you know what I am trying to do, my target application is a Python CGI,
that will be running on an HP-UX Apache web server, that will allow users
at my location to self-service reset their Active Directory passwords.   I
have coded other Python CGI applications running on this server, just have
never had to used the Python-LDAP module before.  Yes, I have the Python
installed (2.7.1) and the OpenLDAP (2.4.33).   In HP-UX, OpenLDAP goes into
various folders in the /usr/local tree.  I have compiled C before and have
gcc installed, usually by following instructions for make/make install.  I
have looked at the default setup.cfg in the Python-LDAP distribution tar
and think I might know how to modify it to fit my sitituation to be able to
do a normal python setup.py build, python setup.py install.     This is how
I think I should do the setup.cfg, does this look right?

library_dirs = /usr/local/lib
include_dirs = /usr/local/include

extra_compile_args = -g
extra_objects =

libs = ldap_r

If you do not think this is the way for me to go with this, then perhaps a
C compile would be best for my situation.   Please advise, and I appreciate
your help.
