Yes Robert.  The openldap package uses perl.  Apache should be rebuilt
based on the openldap package split a few weeks ago.  The dependency at
a minimum should be openldap_client, which also needs openldap_rt.
Neither openldap_client or openldap_rt would have loaded perl.

OpenLDAP can do useful things.  If you do not want to mess with it, do
not create /opt/csw/etc/openldap/slapd.conf and the server portion
should not start a slapd process from the openldap init.d script.
