cross compile openldap error: undefined reference to `lutil_memcmp’.

Filed under: Computing — by zhuqy @ 18:38
When cross compile stable OpenLDAP 2.4.31 (20100219), encounter error on

undefined reference to `lutil_memcmp’.
which could be solved by the following:
After ./configure is called and before calling make, commenting out the line in include/portable.h
or use a sed command
 sed –in-place ‘s/#define NEED_MEMCMP_REPLACEMENT 1//* #undef NEED_MEMCMP_REPLACEMENT *//’ include/portable.h


  1. This was elpful to me. I needed to compile the openldap libs so that I could build a simple application to create active directory users automatically. This got me past a linker error
