Package: lighttpd
Version: 1.4.18-1
Severity: important
Tags: patch
Usertags: implicit-pointer-conversion

Our automated buildd log filter[1] detected a problem that is likely to
cause your package to segfault on architectures where the size of a
pointer is greater than the size of an integer, such as ia64 and amd64.

This is often due to a missing function prototype definition.
For more information, see [2].

  Function `ldap_init' implicitly converted to pointer at mod_auth.c:545
  Function `ldap_init' implicitly converted to pointer at http_auth.c:785

The libldap API has been updated and many functions used by the ldap
plugin are now deprecated. This package should either update to the
new API or define LDAP_DEPRECATED to continue using the deprecated

This patch implements the lazy solution.
