Well, it was a long story.

I tried the unified installer of Plone. It is buildout based and works.
Then I tried to add the plone-ldap package and, after days of googling 
end trying different recipes, I ended with a buildout that generates an 
error when compiling openldap-2.3.39 when generating getpeereid.o

So I also tried the development version of Plone ( svn co ) and 
obtained the same error.

As a last resort I tried to use the plone distributed with ubuntu (some 
month ago it worked - but it was on Intrepid) and I found that Plone no 
more works.

Any solution that gives me a working Plone3 with LDAP support is good.
