Don't be so hard on them or any other distro. For you, it's just openldap. For 
them, it's openldap + libldap + liblber and TONS of other packages that 
depend on those. Distros are wary about upgrading because of that, and 
openldap has already changed the API once during a minor upgrade (please note 
I'm not complaining).

The argument of "install openldap somewhere else where its libraries won't be 
seen by the other programs" doesn't work for a distro. It works for you, for 
me or for a company providing (open)ldap services, but not for a distro.
