The list of packages on FC7 - you also need svrcore-devel,
mozldap-devel, and posssibly perl-Mozilla-LDAP and mozldap-tools
Thanks, I'll update the list.
For the bitwise patch - is there a bug for this already? Maybe we
should just commit the bitwise plugin to fedora ds.
I've just filed a bug for you, #239764.
For the schema - you could just remove all unnecessary schema files
$prefix/etc/fedora-ds/schema. ds_newinst.pl copies all of those files
to the new instance directory, so if you don't want them, you could just
remove them from there.
I would rather not do that.

No. Only schema added over LDAP.

I'm not sure what you mean. Do you mean fds-extra.ldif?

I'm not sure what you mean.
I re-read the docs, and the InstallLdif command only applies to the data
partition, not any configuration.

Sure. It would probably be a nice option to have.
