(ITS#4726) ldap_pvt_tls_init not called when new CTX requested

I'm using 2.4.3 and trying to set SSL client certificates on a per-connection

A call to ldap_set_option(ld, LDAP_OPT_X_TLS_NEWCTX, &newctx) fails in my simple
test application because ldap_pvt_tls_init hasn't had a chance to call
SSLeay_add_ssl_algorithms() yet.

I'm not familiar enough w/ openldap to track down how this path occurs, but it
seems like the code in tls.c that handles the SSL_CTX_new() in the event of
LDAP_OPT_X_TLS_NEWCTX should make sure the initializer has been run by calling

(My simple test app works when I add SSLeay_add_ssl_algorithms() before
ldap_set_option).  The failure without the call is 

TLS: could not allocate default ctx (336236705).
