[sudo-workers] Compiling sudo for AIX 5.3 with LDAP

Could anyone comment on what I have done with the sudo with LDAP on AIX 5.3.  Your help is appreciated.

When compiling sudo with LDAP on AIX 5.3, does the sudo expect IBM AIX LDAP implementation or OpenLDAP ?
I have the environment setup to IBM LDAP

./configure --with-ldap

When the "make" is executed, it cannot find the libldap.a.  I had to link the libibmldap.a to libldap.a in order for the make to be successful.

After "make package" and have the bff installed when running "sudo -l", I got the following error:

sudo: /usr/local/libexec/sudoers.so must be only be writable by owner
sudo: fatal error, unable to load plugins

After changing the permission to 755:

#chmod 755 /usr/local/libexec/sudoers.so
# sudo -l
sudo: unable to dlopen /usr/local/libexec/sudoers.so: There are too many levels of symbolic links to translate a path name.
sudo: fatal error, unable to load plugins
