Or Microsofts'.  Your point?

It's actually harmless [in Win32] to build util_ldap/mod_auth_ldap
with MS's library.  If the user doesn't install ldap, then those two
specific modules won't load.  However, it doesn't harm libaprutil
since that module doesn't actually bind to any ldap functions.

The gist of the Win32 question; how many Win9x/ME users will
be looking to deploy these modules?  Those are the users who
must obtain the client from a Win2000/XP product CD.  WinNT 4.0
users can simply download it from the web, and 2000/XP users
are already set.

Ahhh,  Worth considering as yet another alternative to openldap
and the MS implementation.
