[csw-users] openldap version update for testing

There is a version update for openldap in testing to bring us up to the
current release, which is 2.3.12.  This version update has been needed
for a long time.  The testing url is http://www.blastwave.org/testing

If you are running slapd on the current CSW 2.1.30 package, you must
unload and reload the database.  I used slapcat to extract the data to
an ldif file.  Ater installing the new version, I loaded the data
with slapadd.  Also, I run slapd with a non-root user and ran slapcat
not as that user and had to fix permissions on some new files. So
watch for that.

The old libraries are still in the openldap_rt package, so client
applications should be fine.  Note that the package
has /opt/csw/etc/openldap/DB_CONFIG.example.  The same file is
in /opt/csw/var/openldap-data and that is where your copy of DB_CONFIG
is to be installed.  I will fix that on the next update.

The 2.1.x patch for ROOTDSE is not supposed to be needed with this
version.  So that patch is not in the package.  If this causes someone
a problem, please let me know.  Also, if there are patches that you are
using for your build of OpenLDAP 2.3.x and you think they are needed,
please let me know.

To any slapd folks, please test these packages, i.e., openldap
openldap_client openldap_rt.

Thanks, Alex
