It's already there: with gcc, without any special flag, you get a
"assignment makes pointer from integer without a cast" if you use
ldap_init(3) and assign the result to a LDAP*; with -Wall you also get
"warning: implicit declaration of function `ldap_init'".  Of course,
then, developers should take care of compile warnings...  I don't know
what we could do more, other than removing those functions from libldap.
