balsa build help

I just uploaded balsa 1.2.4, which failed to build on every

In each case, the failure looks like this:

checking for ldap_search in -lldap... no
configure: error: *** You enabled LDAP but ldap library is not found.
make: *** [build-stamp] Error 1

...but this is weird.  The configure test looks like this:

LIBS="-lldap -llber $LIBS"
cat > conftest.$ac_ext <<EOF
#line 8735 "configure"
#include "confdefs.h"
/* Override any gcc2 internal prototype to avoid an error.  */
/* We use char because int might match the return type of a gcc2
    builtin and then its argument prototype would still apply.  */
char ldap_search();

int main() {
; return 0; }

..so it should suffice to have properly working libldap.so and
liblber.so.  On my machine, these are both provided by libldap2-dev.

But balsa *does* build depend on libldap2-dev!  And the build logs
clearly show it being installed by sbuild.

I can't see what's happening (without looking inside the config.log
file, I guess).



PS. When I have buildd problems, is there a canonical place to
contact porters?  I remember being told that debian-68k was the wrong
place for 68k; what about the other architectures?
