I don't know about FC2, but, FC3 is currently at 2.2.13 and current OpenLDAP release is 2.2.23. As such, you're probably fine with FC3 openldap as shipped. I suspect the FC3 RPMs would work on FC2, since both use the same kernel and mostly the same libraries.
FWIW, the upgrade from RH9 and FC2 to FC3 has been near painless for me on multiple systems (no reinstall, just in-place upgrade by booting FC3 disks and upgrading existing install).
Issues to watch out for: Apache goes from 1.* to 2.* -- some changes to suexec and modperl Changes to SASL
Everything else went pretty smoothly on the systems I've dealt with.
See, I'd argue very differently... OpenLDAP 2.2.13 is *very old*, and many many bugs have been fixed since that release, some of which I'd consider must-haves, like the memory leak fixes that went in around 2.2.17, and the DOS security attack fix that went into 2.2.23. Unless you were very careful with how you constructed your ACL's, I could crash any OL server (2.1 or 2.2) prior to OpenLDAP 2.2.23 with a very simple ldap search.
In a lot of instances, it's well worth the time tradeoff to just accept that although a bit behind, the Fedora team has taken care of building the things most people need into a working slapd in a precompiled package with a reasonable default slapd.conf.
Again, YMMV, but, it is very clear to me that a lot of the LDAP community just sort of seems to assume that everyone has infinite time to invest in dealing with LDAP. This simply isn't the case in the real world.
