No.  libldap-2.3 is packaged for internal use by openldap only, it is not
available for use by other packages (and won't be; we won't get a public
-dev package again until openldap 2.4 when openldap is switched again to use
GNUTLS in Debian).

Steve Langasek                   Give me a lever long enough and a Free OS
Debian Developer                   to set it on, and I can move the world.
