I know next to nothing about how the openldap-client stuff works, so I'm 
sorry if these questions are silly. :) The biggest question is, does 
dirmngr compile after your change? The other question is that the only 
reason I have openldap installed at all is so that gnupg can use it to 
fetch keys from ldap keyservers. Will this still work when the FETCH 
option is no longer present?
