I think using of the OTHER-LIBS argument is cool (I were not knowing about 
it till now :-)

However I didn't thing theway you use it here is right here.

I made a patch yesterday which moves the LDAP test before the ADS/KRB5 test

and which tests if ldap.h is really there. (so we'll get better 
autodetecting of
  LDAP KRB5 and ADS)
I'll change that to use AC_CHECK_LIB with OTHER-LIBS aregument
and send it soon...
