I've just build Apache 2.2.8 with Novell CLDAP, and that works fine for me with LDAPS
against Novell eDir; not yet tested against OpenLDAP since I have no server handy;
here are binary archives in zip and 7zip (about 40% smaller) format:
there's a sample config httpd-authnzldap.conf in the ./conf/extra folder;
please test, and let me know how that works for ya...

if you want to build self then here's what I had to change:
the archive contains a patch which changes the *.dsp files to use the Novell CLDAP libs,
and patches the defines in srclib/apr-util/include/apr_ldap.hw;
I've also hacked an awk script which can do the switch between different LDAP SDKs;
there's a GNU makefile (sorry, but was too lazy to lookup the nmake syntax) which
can switch between those LDAP SDKs which are currently available for Win32;
however the apr_ldap.hw ifdefs support currently only the Novell CLDAP SDK in
addition to the MS LDAP SDK; if I get my hands on an OpenLDAP SDK I can add this too;
I guess Mozilla is also possible - but I've not tried yet...

A proper solution would be to add targets for each additional LDAP SDK, and then call
the awk script from there so that the generated apr_ldap.h contains the right defines;
and I think another target without LDAP support could also be useful...

greets, Guenter.
