7.18.0 I assume, which is the latest released version.

I doubt Red Hat made an incompatible change that would prevent it from
compiling on CentOS 4.

I thought the test system was changed to allow running under root, but I
could be wrong. In any case, you can ignore this (it doesn't make the tests
fail) or better yet, don't compile your RPM as root!

Since you're using the latest release, it looks like there could still
be a curl bug here that only shows up in your configuration. What does
the %configure command line look like in your .spec file? What LDAP
packages do you have installed on your system (i.e. what's the output of
'grep -i ldap /var/log/rpmpkgs')? What's the output of
'grep LDAP /usr/src/redhat/BUILD/curl-7.18.0/lib/config.h' (or wherever
your RPM builddir is) after a failed RPM build?
