See 'TLS_REQCERT <level>' in 'man ldap.conf',
or ldap_set_option(ld, LDAP_OPT_X_TLS_REQUIRE_CERT,
&(int with value LDAP_OPT_X_TLS_<NEVER, ALLOW or TRY>)).

The above options existed - undocumented - even in OpenLDAP 2.0.0.
Hm. LDAP_OPT_X_TLS_REQUIRE_CERT is still undocumented.
Yeah, a ldap_set_option(3) manpage is long overdue. I usually resort to
trawling through ldap.h for likely looking suspects :)
Thanks for the tip, that should work great for most of my needs.
File an ITS with the text. ;)
