> I think we should link and use the LDAP library just like we link and
use all the other external libs we use.

Here is the patch !

This was not that easy, since there are a lot of different cases:
openldap/winldap, linux/win$ and the hybrids like cygwin.
By the way, the dlfcn version was not working on hybrids (because
ldap_url_parse() is undefined!). Should be working with this patch.

The patch defines its own LDAP prototypes for all but win$ and hybrids,
because there are too many different versions of /usr/include/ldap.h,
and because we already have a file called ldap.h :-(

I tried to remove everything about dlfcn from the code and the various
config and build files. I hope I did not removed too much.

I tested this patch successfully on Linux (FC6) and on cygwin: these are
the only "standard" platforms I have access to. I think some additional
compilation tests on other platforms should be done before committing,
for example with MSC.

Please let me know about your successes or failures, or when OK to
