Argh - thanks so much for that. You are so right - I had to go back and 
rebuild opal and ptlib - as I removed the ldap library in the meanwhile 
as well. Finally Ekiga is starting now.

There is still an error message during the actual installation of Ekiga 
- but it doesn't appear to stop me from using it:

Executing install script for ekiga-4.0.1-x86_64-1_SBo.tgz.

(gconftool-2:6491): GConf-WARNING **: Client failed to connect to the 
D-BUS daemon:
/usr/bin/dbus-launch terminated abnormally with the following error: No 
protocol specified
Autolaunch error: X11 initialization failed.

Package ekiga-4.0.1-x86_64-1_SBo.tgz installed.

Is the above because of some setting missing on my laptop - maybe I 
don't have dbus running correctly? Bear in mind that I install this in a 
"su" root shell - maybe that's the reason?
