Strange you didn't find anything in the archives, it's been discussed.

base-config installs a stable (potato) sources.list. The libopenldap 
error is the first symptom of trying to install potato packages over
a woody base system.

Until woody is actually released, when it will become 'stable', you 

Change 'stable' in your sources.list to 'woody'
apt-get update
apt-get dist-upgrade

Ideally this should be done after base-config asks about your apt config 
and before you run tasksel or dselect. Otherwise you will get many errors
like the one you reported.
