FWIW I have experimented with this recently and found ocspd from was able to frontend a CRL-as-static-file
 satisfactorily (albeit for a different security library and SSL
application).  It seems to be BSD-like and gratis.

Unfortunately I stopped short of trying to frontend a CRL-over-LDAP,
but it does purport to do this as part of its core functionality.
