im running db-4.7.25 with the "upstream_fixes-1.patch" from the patches

with openldap i'm at 2.4.16 as this is the recommended stable release
for production. see:

i had to apply a little patch to be able to compile with the 6.5 toolchain:

i had to add
#include "portable.h"

2.4.18 compiles without this patch. i hadn't the time for heavy testing,
thus i still use 2.4.16 for production environment as recommended by the
openldap people.
