The option is already there just add a substituion in Makefile.in and all.mk
for @edir@


Would be:

SOURCES		:= $(TARGETNAME).c @edir@

If it's built --with-edir @edir@ will be expanded to edir_ldapext.c

If --with-edir is passed -DNOVELL_UNIVERSAL_PASSWORD -DNOVELL will also be added to module CFLAGS.

git rebase -i HEAD~<number of commits you want to squash>

Change the start of the commit lines you want to squash to 'f'

Git push --force origin master

then you can just do a pull request for your master branch on the github website.
