[sudo-users] RHEL WS 3 / LDAP via ssl - start_tls_s not working?

Unfortunately sudo 1.6.8 is not included in the RedHat WS 3 (update 3).
What I was looking for was to have a centralized sudoers file.
Using OpenLDAP 2.0.27-17 from RedHat to compile sudo 1.6.8p8 seems to
work well (config.log shows: define HAVE_LDAP_START_TLS_S 1 ), but when
I try to use it in my LDAP environment:

LDAP Config Summary
host         myldapserver
port         636
ldap_version 3
sudoers_base ou=Sudoers,dc=my,dc=domain,dc=com
binddn       (anonymous)
bindpw       (anonymous)
ssl          on
ldap_simple_bind_s()=81 : Can't contact LDAP server

Shouldn't I be seeing ldap_start_tls_s here?

In my /etc/ldap.conf on the LDAP client I have no binddn or bindpw, but
am using rootbinddn and /etc/ldap.secret (600) to bind to the LDAP
server, could this be the issue?

Thanks in Advance,
