Has anyone installed openLDAP on a PowerMac7300 running the latest yellowdog?

I've been trying to get it installed but have had some problems. To
install it requires first installing SleepyCat's DB, that went ok.

Then the openLDAP calls for a:
make depend

and then running make in a test subfolder, which tests to make sure
everything is running, but that fails in the first test.

This is the test output:

[root@mac1 tests]# make
ln: ./data: cannot overwrite directory
make: [all-local] Error 1 (ignored)
Initiating LDAP tests...
>>>>> Executing all LDAP tests...
>>>>> Test Directory: .
>>>>> Backend: ldbm
>>>>> Starting test001-ldif2ldbm ...
running . ldbm
Datadir is ./data
Cleaning up in ./test-db...
Running ldif2ldbm to build slapd database...
ldif2ldbm failed!
>>>>> ./scripts/test001-ldif2ldbm failed (exit 1)
make: *** [all-local] Error 1

Now looking at the ./scripts/test001-ldif2ldbm script leads me to
believe that this is where it's failing (see below), but not being
much of a programmer, I'm not sure why or what it means when this
line fails.

echo "Running ldif2ldbm to build slapd database..."
$LDIF2LDBM -f $CONF -i $LDIF -e ../servers/slapd/tools
if test $RC != 0 ; then
         echo "ldif2ldbm failed!"
         exit $RC

If anyone has had any luck in installing this, and how you did so,
please let me know.
