You definitely have a compile time problem if you use undefined functions,
since in C undefined types default to int (32 bits) while pointers usually
have word size (64 bits on 64 bit archs).


There's a typo in the above; the correct macro name is LDAP_DEPRECATED

No, it's not.  But ldap_init() is, and your issue could start there.

Please fix the above issues and retry.  And pump up the compile-time
warnings to get some useful information from the compiler itself (e.g.
-Wall with gcc).
