I can't see anything recent or semi-recent (i.e. since I last built
either mozilla or phoenix) that could account for the "sudden"
collision with openldap.  (surely the pthread changes don't cause it?)

Never the less, you're absolutely right:  mozilla will now only build
after de-installing openldap (and pine, and so on).  I am now happily
building mozilla again on the same pair of machines where I had built it
before and I expect the phoenix re-build will go equally well.

This is a pretty serious bug I'd say -- except on my static-only systems
there's no way I can de-installing openldap just so that I can build
mozilla or one of its derivatives.

Presumably someone is already looking at mozilla-1.2.1.  Hopefully this
can be resolved for this next upgrade.  I sure don't want to be the one
to dig into the mozilla build to try and figure this out though -- it's
a little too big and ugly in there for me!

In the mean time I guess the best I can do is submit a patch with a new
CONFLICTS entry....
