This does not build the release.  OpenLDAP does use git archive
to pick the files for a release, but then untars them, runs
build/mkrelease, and tars the result up again.

mkrelease seems to use sha1 and md5 programs from FreeBSD, the
Linux utilities I found have different output format.

As for git archive --remote=git://git.openldap.org/openldap.git,
man git-daemon says this requires 'git config daemon.uploadarch
true'.  But since the result differs from a release, it may do
more harm than help to enable it.  Unless it is set up to create
an README.INCOMPLETE-RELEASE file or something.
