It's not a  "configuration" issue,  it's a simple compilation/support issue.
Read carefully: http://www.gratisoft.us/sudo/readme_ldap.html

If you compile using '--with-ldap' option enabled you'll get LDAP 
support; if not, you won't. That's all.

You're missing some point, sure.

I must not fear. Fear is the mind-killer. Fear is the little-death that 
brings total obliteration. I will face my fear. I will permit it to pass 
over me and through me. And when it has gone past I will turn the inner 
eye to see its path. Where the fear has gone there will be nothing. Only 
I will remain.

Bene Gesserit Litany Against Fear.
