It's so trivial to workout otherwise that it does not deserve the coding

> Diffs attached for ldapsearch -r (turn off line wrap)

I suggest making the -r switch accept an optional arg that specifies the
wrap column, defaulting to LDIF_LINE_WIDTH; so

(nothing) means wrap at column LDIF_LINE_WIDTH

-r alone means don't wrap at all

-r <positive integer> means wrap at given column

This should be submitted as a patch to HEAD (or at least re23) code.
