you arnet using any v2 config files on the new v3 server are you? 
I as, because the default config on v3 will not fail like this - all you
need to do is configure the ldap module and the server will use it
*IF* the ldap is correct ( thats what the -ldap means.... nots just 'ldap' - 
-ldap is a conditional module, will be called if the config was
okay for the module and its active/connected)

you've done the typical thing of just looking at the last few lines and 
posting that small snipper. dont, the error is very likely in previous
output - post the full output of radiusd -X
