We have already put the solution to a vote, and this is the outcome:

I completely do not understand one bit why we are wasting yet more  
time voting yet again on a solution. Just pick up a keyboard, a copy  
of the draft LDAP RFC, and finish the work we agreed to do.

If you believe someone else should do the work and not you, ask, and  
as a courtesy, explain why you believe it shouldn't be you.

If you believe this work should be prioritised for inclusion in httpd  
v2.4 and apr-util v1.4, say so.

It builds with --with-ldap, but this should not be necessary - it's  
only if your library is in a non standard location that --with-ldap  
should be necessary.
