I guess the savest way is to have a libldap-nossl-dev and
libldap-ssl-dev. The former should have anything ssl derived

Packages without linking exception can then Build-Depend on
libldap-nossl-dev. If the ssl and nonssl ldap has the same ABI (nonssl
being a subset of ssl to be precise) the package can work with either
lib then.
