Sorry for wedging in sideways, but I've looked into building a more

Cygwin.  Specifically, there's code trying to use robust POSIX mutexes,
which Cygwin doesn't have.  As there is no configure option (that I
could find), the solution is a bit invasive: either feeding in a number
of preprocessor defines or patching in the recognition of Cygwin into
libraries/liblmdb/mdb.c to define the correct options there.

Any chance the upcoming release would have a fix for that?

Hi Achim,

I would suggest filing a report in the OpenLDAP issue tracker at:


I use MSYS2 for my OpenLDAP on windows builds, so haven't any direct experience at the moment with building it via cygwin.
