But this is pulled in automatically unless --disable-ldap is
explicitly given. --enable-ldap does nothing different as best

My question still stands: What exactly does --enable-ldap do that
is not done by default if --disable-ldap is not passed?

/mnt/rmlnptl3/usr/lib/mozilla-1.7.7/ =>  (0xffffe000) => /lib/ (0xb7e5a000)
        /lib/ (0x80000000)

No difference noted. This is from my last build of Mozilla. You'll
note that it is on a different partition, but that shouldn't matter.
