The overlays fail to install to $pkgdir with:

"libtool: install: error: relink `' with the above command before installing it "

My setup is a system/chroot NOT having openldap/libldap already installed.

So, in package_libldap the libraries are installed and in package_openldap the clients, servers,
overlays and the rest.

Now the problem is that those two installations happen in $pkgdir/libldap resp. $pkgdir/openldap.

for dir in clients servers doc/man/man{1,5,8}; do
pushd ${dir}
make DESTDIR="${pkgdir}" install

This installs only the server and the client to $pkgdir/openldap, but now libtool comes
along and tries to relink against for instance -lldap_r. Now there is one in $pkgdir/libldap
but none in $pkgdir/openldap.

What makes matters worse, if there is a /usr/lib/ on the system/chroot, libtool
relinks against that one (which is maybe not so bad, as it will be installed there anyway
when installing the package).

One way I was able to bootstrap was to do the following in package_openldap:

# install also the libraries to $pkgdir/openldap
for dir in libraries clients servers doc/man/man{1,5,8}; do
pushd ${dir}
make DESTDIR="${pkgdir}" install

make -C contrib/slapd-modules/autogroup prefix=/usr libexecdir=/usr/lib sysconfdir=/etc/openldap DESTDIR
="$pkgdir" install

# clean up to avoid file clashed with the libldap subpackage

rm -rf ${pkgdir}/usr/{lib,include,man3}

I realize, this is maybe not a bug per se, but it points to a fundemtal issue with
split packages (at least, when they use libtool for linking).

Additional info:
* package version(s): 2.4.45-4
