Sorry, I got it. According to http://wiki2.dovecot.org/CompilingSource I 
should use:

LDFLAGS="-L/usr/local/openldap/lib64 -lldap -llber" ./configure

I found (coincidentally) that it also works simply with 
"LDFLAGS="-L/usr/local/openldap/lib64" but I guess it is more correct to 
use the full syntax: LDFLAGS="-L/usr/local/openldap/lib64 -lldap -llber" 
(or even "... -lldap" only). However, I can't tell the real difference.

If you can shed some light on it, that would be very useful to me.

Thanks and regards,
