Hi all,

OpenLDAP has released 2.5.4 version and curl compiling fails... Any chance to get it adopted soon?

This is error:

OS is OpenIndiana (Illumos based), GCC 9 suite used. Same configure works and curl compiles fine with OpenLDAP 2.4.xx.

Yeah, turns out we use ldap_ prefixes on private functions in that source file and OpenLDAP has introduced a function that uses the exact same name as we use for a private function. The fix is to avoid that prefix for private functions.

bagder added a commit that referenced this issue May 5, 2021
Since openldap itself uses that prefix and with OpenĹDAP 2.5.4 (at
least) there's a symbol collision because of that.

The private functions now use the 'oldap_' prefix where it previously
used 'ldap_'.
