You can use rpm flags at recompile time to throw many things out:

I don't think it makes sense to pull these things out of Fedora, but
it is true that from a source code level these things should be modular
and thus optional.

I think they should be runtime modular.
So If I have kerberos libs installed, thay can be used. If not, somother method is used.


I don't believe I need ldap anything to use mozilla. If I have ldap, mozilla can be told to use it, but it's not required. Same for encrypting the ldap connection. It could use no authentication, clear transmission, to strong authentication, encrypted connections, or any where in between.

Changes should not require the app to be recompiled, just a new library installed.
