This has been discussed here before, but just in case the point has been lost on anyone, it's possible to get OpenLDAP 2.2.17 running with back-perl on the above Linux distros if you:

  1) Rebuild Perl without threading
  2) Compile OpenSSL with CPPFLAGS="-DOPENSSL_NO_KRB5"

Rebuilding Perl without threading is a pain, because if you want
to do it 'right' you'll grab the source RPM and rebuild it with
threading turned off - then reinstall the RPMs so created.  Doing
this will highlight conflicts with software that seems to depend
on a threaded Perl, and you'll have to decide whether you need
this software or not.

It's a pain, in other words, but you can do it if you really
need to.
