This is correct.
OpenLDAP 1.x implements the U-Mich API (rfc1823 with mods).
OpenLDAP 2.x (-devel) will implement the current API draft spec

LDAP_OPT_DEREF is defined in ldap.h (pretty much any flavor).
Same goes for REFERRAL and RESTART. LDAP_OPT_TIMELIMIT/SIZELIMIT
are post U-Mich defines.

These are for specifying protocol levels, not API levels. I do
not recommend using these to detect the API level.

If all you are checking for is ldap_set_option(), then checking for
LDAP_OPT_SIZELIMIT should be good enough. However, note, there are
other API differences where a more complex check may be needed.
