Something I've been considering as well. -lopenldap{,_r}

Are there other ways to resolve this?  On unix, this quite
solvable (as demonstrated in servers/slapd/Makefile.in)?
Would not be surprised if NT and NetWare offered similar solutions.

It's possible, but not something I would do without devel
list discussion.  I'll redirect this discussion there.

Well, the files are only in devel and 2.0-alpha branches.  We
likely could do a repo copy (to preserve history) and then
remove the old copy normally.  This would have the (benign)
side effect of the file showing up under two names in these
existing revisions.  Likely best if only done for
liblber/options.c as it has less history.
