Before you decompress tarballs, it is a good idea to make a list of files on the system before you install OpenLDAP, and one afterwards, and then compare them using diff to find out what file it placed where. Simply run find /* > OpenLDAP1 before and find /* > OpenLDAP2 after you install the software, and use diff OpenLDAP1 OpenLDAP2 > OpenLDAP-Installed to get a list of what changed.

Compile and decompress the tarball, tar.gz.
