That GPL-like license condition is is one of the reasons that NetBSD

As far as I can tell, it's not possible to build the bdb backend
in OpenLDAP 2.4.9; support was removed a while ago.
(When I first did a port of OpenLDAP to a NetBSD-like source
tree, it was OpenLDAP 2.2.x, and that did still support it.)

An alternative I've considered is using the SQL backend with SQLite.
