Am trying to get ldap authentication (after installing using the Universal
Installer on Debian Etch)
Am at the point of installing ldap module into python under /opt
Have tried instructions here: 


(thanks) but install falls over.
I am guessing that the problem is in the setup.cfg file with these two

library_dirs = /usr/local/openldap-2.3/lib
include_dirs = /usr/local/openldap-2.3/include /usr/include/sasl

as I am guessing they should point to directories under
/opt/Plone-3.0.4/Python-2.4.4 somewhere.

As I am a complete newbie a fuller description:
download python-ldap-2.3.1.tar.gz to /root
untar package: tar -zxvf *.tar.gz
cd python-ldap-2.3.1
$ export PATH=/opt/Plone-3.0.4/Python-2.4.4/bin:$PATH 
python setup.py install
falls over here

any help appreciated
