Just tried. I wouldn't recommend it, but it works.
Using the LDAP_ALLOW_NULL_SEARCH_BASE hack, and adding a
dummy suffix to the first entry, say suffix o=root, one
can add a referral:
dn: ref="ldap://myldaphost.domain/c=xx", o=root
This will allow for another backend with suffix c=xx to be searched
with an empty base. A c=xx search will be done in a separate connection,
and, at least with ldapsearch, will bind anonymous even when
on the first connection.
