New LDAP convert; configuration pains

I'm tasked with setting up directory services ASAP.
This is appearing to be a relatively nontrivial problem and I'm
not sure if I'm on the right track or not.

I need to provide local directory services, and have installed LDAP
3.3 slapd. I have also installed the go500gw server and the web500gw
server. Both seem to work nicely in connecting to true x.500 servers,
but it looks as though they're not useful with slapd.

I am trying to compile isode-8.0--which I found in an OBSCURE portion of the
net--so as to be able to compile the ldapd server in addition to the
slapd server for local directory serving and connection to the
aforementioned DUA clients and--less importantly for immediate consideration--
the rest of the x.500 world.

In short, I THINK what I'm trying to do is provide a means for what appear
to be DAP protocol clients--go500gw and web500gw--to connect to the LDAP
database served by slad.

We're running Solaris 2.5 here, and are an educational k12 district if that
is at all relevant in terms of the ISODE license.

Any guidance will be greatly appreciated!
