Mark Round is the person you quote above as the "former maintainer" of
php.  He is in fact the current maintainer of php4.  I am the current
maintainer of php5, and I have not (to the best of my and gmail's
recollection) received any emails directly on this topic.

At this time, the php[45]_ldap modules *require* OpenLDAP.  Any LD_*
games will fail dismally, as OpenLDAP is most certainly != Sun LDAP.
Attempting to distribute a Sun LDAP capable php[45]_ldap module might
be possible, were we to create two packages php[45]_ldap, and
php[45]_ldapsun which were incompatible with each other.  I will
attempt such a build this morning, but as I recollect from compiling
against the Sun LDAP libraries in the past, there may be code changes
to PHP required, and I no longer have the patches I was using.  This
translates into additional time spent creating the packages.  Not an
intractable problem, but I do have a day job :-).

I'll see what I can do on the php5 front.
