Ah, well spotted! I hadn't noticed that PR.

On closer inspection it's fairly obvious where the problem is. The
included lber-int.h includes "lber.h". This isn't in the current
directory and looking at the compiler options we can see how it finds
the system installed version rather than the local version first:

cc ... -I/usr/local/include ... -I../../../ldap/include ...

But I'm not sure where to start looking in this build system to fix it ;-)
