I tried adding those options but still get the same error; "could not
find an LDAP library".

Yes, libldap.a exists there.

I don't have root access on this box, so I can't modify the GCC installation.

If someone could tell me they've compiled with IBM's compiler and
knows that I could run it on another box without installing the
compiler, then I would be interested in going down that path.
