Looking at the source tree, and logs from my Thunderbird build,
there is no dependency on OpenLDAP whatsoever. Moz code includes
internal references to its own ldap code, and uses it unless
--disable-ldap is given. Though the configure script shows that
there is a subtle difference if --enable-ldap is passed, I cannot
figure out what it does.

Until DJ answers the above question, it is impossible to answer his
original question.
