checking for openssl/ssl.h... no
configure: error: Could not locate TLS/SSL package

when i tried build binary from openldap source, i am getting "Could not locate TLS/SSL package" error.

Here is the command i am using

env CPPFLAGS="-I/openldap/db4/include" LDFLAGS="-L/openldap/db4/lib" ./configure --with-tls=openssl --prefix=/openldap/openldap-install

How do i compile openldap with TLS/SSL support?

You want to install the openssl-devel package for your tartget CPU.  I am assuming a 64-bit Intel so it would be openssl-devel.x86_64.

where can i get it
What Linux distribution are you running.  If you are running something based on RedHat you should be able to use yum:

yum install openssl-devel.x86_64
