Not sure if this is already on the radar, but.. gcc 3.3.1 prerelease

Nice to get rid of that uninitialized ret warning; I'm not sure about
how errno (set during ldap_open) relates to the error codes in ldap.h
or what an appropriate default would be (LDAP_OTHER?
LDAP_SERVER_DOWN?). I think it's definitely a bug leaving it as is
though - if it gets a default of zero it'll be considered a success.
(#define LDAP_SUCCESS 0x00)

(ldap_open() is deprecated, btw.)
