When you run ./configure to build GPG, what does it say about LDAP?
It would be something like this:

 checking whether LDAP via "-lldap" is present and sane... yes

If it doesn't say 'yes', then you're not building with LDAP support.
Depending on your OS, you often need to install a "devel" package for
this (so, openldap-devel or similar).
