Given the ldap.conf (5) man page, any ldap client using the libraries 
should parse the ldap.conf.  So that should make the putenv 
unnecessary?  The following is from linux, but of course openbsd has 
the same thing listed.



       ldap.conf, .ldaprc - ldap configuration file

       /etc/openldap/ldap.conf, .ldaprc

       If  the  environment  variable LDAPNOINIT is defined, all defaulting is

       The ldap.conf configuration file is used to set system-wide defaults to
       be applied when running ldap clients.

       Users  may create an optional configuration file, ldaprc or .ldaprc, in
       their home directory which will be used  to  override  the  system-wide
       defaults  file.   The  file  ldaprc in the current working directory is
       also used.
