Forum OpenACS Development: Re: Installing nsldap with aolserver-4.5.0: make: execvp: /usr/local/aolserver: Permission denied

does /usr/local/aolserver/lib/libnsldap.a exist? if yes, it might be a permission problem (not likely).

If only the ranlib command fals, the LD_LIBRARY_PATH is not the problem. in some older build environments, the static libraries (.a) are built, although they are not needed. Most likely, you need just the shared library (.so or .dylib), which might be already built and installed, in which case you can ignore the error.
