Actually I think I'm going to opt for shipping a file of known binary
attributes. Searching the schema is clearly not portable.

Excuse me? This has been a standard feature of LDAPv3 for several years. It is the *only* portable approach, by definition. All LDAPv3 servers must support it otherwise they are not LDAPv3 servers.
Also, I'm just curious by why didn't you present the schema information
like all other information in the directory so that it's searchable
using regular ldap routines?

Since it is of course searchable using the standard LDAP Search operation, you clearly have no idea what you're asking.
