[sudo-users] sudo -V for old versions

I think I see the problem. I was running a bff-format binary package for
AIX. I assume this was built with mkpkg. mkpkg apparently doesn't do the
configure with ldap options but somehow ldap gets added whn pp is run. Also
when pp is run the aix_freeware option is forced. Unfortunately, I'm using
IBM Tivoli Directory server rather than the freeware LDAP, so I guess
things aren't built correctly for my system.

I'd like to build a bff package for my system. Any words of wisdom on what
to fix?

Actually, sudo seems to authenticate properly with ldap, but since it's
difficult to tell how ldap got included with pp, it's hard to build a
similar package that uses ITDS. Also, I'm not sure if the sudo
configuration entries in ldap will work.
