Just came across Treequel while googling for a ruby LDAP library to use to write clients to test/play with OpenLDAP, which I recently started learning.
When installing treequel, it twice failed with an error referring to various header files that were missing. I had to use google searches and apt-get commands to finally guess at which packages were needed and get them installed before the treequel install worked:
Also noticed the installation printed a message about the treequel command-line tools no longer being included, so had to install treequel-shell afterwards.
Would be nice if all of the above were covered in the README to make the new-user experience as smooth as possible.
