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'
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.
