GQ requires OpenLDAP 2.0 or higher for its schema functionality (Schema browser, Template builder, and "smart" editing). However, once compiled, it will work against any LDAP V3 compliant server.

path where your Kerberos libraries and header files are installed.

path where your OpenSSL libraries and header files are installed.
