Not quite that easy. It's a 5MB shared object.
Judicous use of find & nm located a bourne shell script that rebuilds the
libclntsh.so.8.0 shared library. And, removing any mention of ldap from
that, and any files with ldap in them, from the $ORACLE_HOME directory
allowed me to prune any mention of LDAP from Oracle's client libraries!
Kate, the very happy camper.
