Sigh. You're using the wrong terminology. Link has a very specific 
meaning in the context of shared objects (e.g. .so files). What the 
message was trying to tell you was the dynamic loader could not load the 
rlm_ldap module (a shared object). That might be because rlm_ldap.so 
isn't on your system or your loader has not be made aware of it's 
existence (e.g. ldconfig on Linux).

You would be "connecting" to the ldap server on the other system, not 
"linking" it.

Really, you need to read the FAQ and learn to use the correct 
vocabulary, anything less and you'll be flailing hopelessly and 
frustrating those who are trying to help you.
