.if defined(WITH_LDAP)
LIB_DEPENDS+=	ldap.2:${PORTSDIR}/net/openldap20-client

That would be preferable, because OpenLDAP 2.0 is about to be removed
May 1st. You'll have to remove the LIB_DEPENDS above, too.

This is currently the default. You can change that by using
WANT_OPENLDAP_VER, although you won't have any advantages on
the client side.

Depending on what you want to do, you need to compile OpenLDAP with
SASL support, Cyrus SASL with Heimdal GSSAPI or Heimdal with OpenLDAP
support. See for example <>
