First, afaik, you need to give configure the '--with-ldap' option or else
it won't even look into it...

There's a bug in the build of mod_ldap that never looks for the netscape
SDK and only tries to build with openldap (hence it fails).

I just posted a fix for this to the list 3 days ago.  I also included a
patch so TIMEOUT is also implemented when using the sdk.

Note that I had no luck with Sun's released SDK (5.06).  I did compile
Mozilla's latest version (5.14 or 5.16 - can't remember) and it works fine
(New version of Mozilla's sdk do include ssl functionality now).

Basically, to get it to use, look for:

srclib/apr-util/includes/arp_ldap.h.in

Search for:

/* FIXME: remove this when above code works.  Default to build with
 * OpenLDAP until apu-conf.m4 support exists */
#define APR_HAS_OPENLDAP_LDAPSDK 1
#define APR_HAS_LDAP_SSL 1

And change it to:

/* FIXME: remove this when above code works.  Default to build with
 * OpenLDAP until apu-conf.m4 support exists */
#define APR_HAS_OPENLDAP_LDAPSDK 0
#define APR_HAS_NETSCAPE_LDAPSDK 1
#define APR_HAS_LDAP_SSL 1

Building against the Netscape/Sun/Mozilla sdk, allows you to do failover. 
But you need to have the TIMEOUT patch in, or else if one of the ldap
servers is down (no response) it'll never failover...

There are other patches pending for next release 2.0.55 but these I
mention are not in (AFAIK).

Finally, try to give it a little bit of more options, to help it find stuff:

./configure --with-ldap \
--with-ldap-lib=/usr/local/ldapsdk5/lib \
--with-ldap-include=/usr/local/ldapsdk5/include \
--enable-auth-ldap \
--enable-ldap \
...
