To the best of my knowledge, you need to manually set this option at compile time. I don't believe it's setup by default in the rpm.

Also, if you are trying to centralize Ldap/Kerberos and Sudo, I might suggest looking at http://freeipa.org (Identity, Policy, Audit)

It provides a framework method for administering ldap, Kerberos, and Sudo both with cli and webui.
