On this issue.  I did some digging and on a simple "svn co, configure,
make, make install, make samples, asterisk -c" many of the realtime
and other "modules" attempt to connect to localhost servers (ldap,
odbc, pgsql, etc).  The logs show that because the configs are
commented or empty they use the defaults to attempt to connect.  In
some cases multiple times during load by calling reload. This was not
confined to realtime. I noticed that "motif" does this too.

If there is a reason that this should be happening by default then hit
me with the clue bat.
