we don't have autoconf on NetWare, this requires us to have our own version of apr_ldap.h
(ie. apr_ldap.hnw) just like the Windows platform.  But unlike Windows and Unix, we don't
have to support different flavors of the OS, so going through all of the #ifdef gyrations
doesn't make much sense for us.  The root #define's will always be the same for NetWare.

The only thing that affects Netware [and Unix] is deprecating 
the various #define APU_HAS_LDAP_* symbols and replacing
them with #define APR_HAS_LDAP_* 0 | 1.

If Netware or Win32 can 'conditionally' support ldap, then we need
to consider having an apr_ldap.hxx file that contains all of the
#define APR_HAS_LDAP_* 0 statements.  The header should
always exist, and inform the app if ldap is available.

Of course, I'm expecting that Win32 will support LDAP unconditionally
using MS's implementation, and it sounds the same on Netware.
