Base system's Heimdal with Openldap support?

Hi all,

I was wondering if there is a way to build fbsd's basesystem heimdal 
with openldap support. I saw that /usr/src/kerberos5/ has a 
section starting with .if defined(WITH_OPENLDAP), so I built the world 
with the flag -DWITH_OPENLDAP. What I managed was to link the kdc binary 
with my system's openldap libraries, but no openldap code was compiled 
in the binary. ( kdc --builtin-hdb didn't return ldap)

How could I achieve this with the base system's heimdal, without 
*hacking* the /usr/src/crypt/heimdal/configure* files? (the port's 
heimdal distribution gets configured with openldap backend)

In case I have sent this question in the wrong list, please somebody 
inform me so.

Thank you all in advance.
