Seems odd to me that mail.local and vacation depend upon

The RPM names and locations may differ from our release.
My answers are per our release.

ldap_err2string() is located are in libldap which depends
upon liblber which is normally installed in /usr/local/lib.
Hence, one normally adds: "-L/usr/local/lib -lldap -llber"
to their linker directive.  You may also have to add a number
of other flags (such for location of dynamic libraries and
dependent system libraries).
