That is the kind of things that decided me to keep local prototypes
first. I noticed using ldap includes is a very sensible point...

Just a "brainstorm" idea for future: what about replacing the external
library use by libcurl's own handling of LDAP prototype ? It would avoid
problems like the one above, be compiled on all platforms, and allow
future extensions for ldaps and write access. Main drawbacks are: code
size and time to write it...
