problem in compiling svn from source

while compiling svn from source i faced a problem

it might sound trivial as i m a beginner :

./configure worked fine
but when i issued the make command:

linux-awa5:~/Desktop/subversion-1.4.6 # make
cd subversion/libsvn_subr && /bin/sh /root/Desktop/subversion-1.4.6/libtool --tag=CC --silent --mode=link gcc -g -O2 -pthread -L/usr/lib -rpath /usr/local/lib -o auth.lo cmdline.lo compat.lo config.lo config_auth.lo config_file.lo config_win.lo constructors.lo ctype.lo date.lo dso.lo error.lo hash.lo io.lo kitchensink.lo lock.lo md5.lo nls.lo opt.lo path.lo pool.lo prompt.lo quoprint.lo simple_providers.lo sorts.lo ssl_client_cert_providers.lo ssl_client_cert_pw_providers.lo ssl_server_trust_providers.lo stream.lo subst.lo svn_base64.lo svn_string.lo target.lo time.lo user.lo username_providers.lo utf.lo utf_validate.lo validate.lo version.lo xml.lo /usr/lib/ -lldap -llber -ldb-4.5 -lexpat /usr/lib/ -lrt -lcrypt -lpthread -ldl -lz
/usr/lib/gcc/i586-suse-linux/4.2.1/../../../../i586-suse-linux/bin/ld: cannot find -lldap
collect2: ld returned 1 exit status
make: *** [subversion/libsvn_subr/] Error 1

what is this -lldap and where 2 get it from

SVN seems to need the LDAP shared library, which is not installed. LDAP is the Lightweight Directory Access Protocol. You can find it either on the project homepage ( and compile it from source, or install it as a package based on the package management system of your distribution (on Fedora / RedHat systems that would be yum).

All - when a mod posts that a thread will soon be closed STOP ANSWERING THE THREAD. I posted a link to the copy which will remain open - use that thread to answer the question. These posts may be deleted, which means you will have wasted your time responding here.
