I'll give that a try in the morning.

Yes, the lib appears in that directory.

Right, I just want a version of everything (httpd, ldap, and
Subversion) that work on a box that doesn't have the compiler
installed.  My understanding is that not compiling / linking
statically would result in better performance.  If that is the case,
even more reason for me to go that route, as long as I don't need the
compiler installed on the system it runs on.

I can go down that path if someone can tell me that is my best option.
 It costs money so there are more hoops for me to jump through at
work.  I would go down that path if someone who's done this before can
confirm for me that they can build it with IBM's compiler and what the
instructions are for doing so.
