Exactly that.  The keyserver subdirectory in 1.0.7 contains
gpgkeys_ldap for communicating with the NAI LDAP keyserver, and
gpgkeys_mailto for communicting with the keys-by-mail keyserver.

gpgkeys_ldap is built if you have OpenLDAP installed and
gpgkeys_mailto is built if you have sendmail installed.  They are
automatically installed when you install GnuPG.  GnuPG will call them
when needed.
