In the meantime, I tried building PowerDNS 3.2 on CentOS 5.9 x86_64 
and this worked fine with the standard CentOS OpenLDAP libs.

However, building using:


    %configure \
         --sysconfdir=%{_sysconfdir}/powerdns \
         --libdir=%{_libdir} \
         --with-sqlite3 \
         --with-socketdir=/var/run/pdns-server \
         --with-modules="" \
         --with-dynmodules="pipe gmysql gpgsql gsqlite3 ldap"

I am not sure it produces the required result:
/bin/sh ../../libtool --tag=CXX   --mode=link g++  -D_GNU_SOURCE -O2 -g 
-pipe -Wall -Wp,-D_FORTIFY_SOURCE=2 -fexceptions -fstack-protector 
--param=ssp-buffer-size=4 -m64 -mtune=generic -module -avoid-version 
-lrt -o libldapbackend.la -rpath /usr/lib64 ldapbackend.lo powerldap.lo 
-lldap_r -lz

I understand that the compiler probably still uses: /usr/lib64/ for ldap 
libs, although we instructed (?) it to use ldap libs from 

So, there remain two questions:

1. How to build properly with custom LDAP libs?
2. Why we can't build correctly under CentOS 6, but only under CentOS 5?
