You need to have the LDAP libraries and header files installed on
the machine you are compiling sudo on.  You don't need to have LDAP
configured on that machine, sudo just needs to be able to use the
LDAP libraries and headers.  Typically this means either the HP
LDAP installed in /opt/ldapux or OpenLDAP installed elsewhere.
