Openldap:

- uses ldap.h, lber.h
- links to libldap and liblber 
- supports STARTTLS

Netscape

- uses ldap.h, lber.h, ldap_ssl.h
- links to libldapssl(20|30|40|41)
- supports SSL, but not TLS

iPlanet

- header files???
- links to libldap50 and these: "-lnspr4 -lplc4 -lplds4 -liutil50
-llber50 -lldif50 -lnss3 -lprldap50 -lssl3 -lssldap50"
- SSL support, TLS support unknown

Active Directory

- ???

In addition there are a whole bunch of differences depending on whether
you're using LDAP v2.0 or v3.0 - see apr_ldap_compat.c.

Graham
