FreeRADIUS uses that, so it should be fine.
3.0.20 also has support for LD_PRELOAD in radiusd.conf. You can use this to *force* the server to use a particular LDAP library:
LD_PRELOAD = /usr/local/lib/libldap-foo.so
LD_PRELOAD = /usr/local/lib/libber-foo.so
That configuration ensures that the system linker *never* chooses the broken version of libldap.
