That is a 2.0 discussion not a 1.3 discussion. (and see msgid 

For 1.x, libaprutil must continue to contain functions which use symbols 
defined by the LDAP library; changing each function call into an 
indirected dynamic-symbol-lookup-and-function-call would be an 
unmaintainable hack.  Since downstream users must also continue to be 
linked against those LDAP libraries by virtue of linking against 
libaprutil, it would also be a redundant hack.

(same broadly goes for the XML & DBM interfaces)
