I believe there's an "-r" switch in ldapdelete that does the necessary recursion.

Note that when coding such a thing the operational attribute 'hasSubordinates' available in recent OpenLDAP 2.1.x is quite handy. You have to explicitly request this operational attribute.

(There are similar operational attributes on other LDAP servers: 'numSubordinates' on Netscape/Sun/iPlanet, 'subordinateCount' on Novell eDirectory).
