Actually, Windows has a native ldap api for Windows 2000 onwards. It 
consists from the winldap.h header and wldap32.dll. The apis are 
slightly different in some functions, so sometimes a compatibility 
macros are needed, but it should be conceptually possible to use this 
instead of trying to suck openldap in.
