The problem with building python-ldap on Windows is getting all the
dependencies built first.
In Linux environments they usually come for "free" from your distribution.

First get yourself a MinGW environment. TDM-GCC http://tdm-gcc.tdragon.net/
seems to be a good starting point
Next comes building the dependencies.

Some time ago I went trough the pain of doing just that using MinGW32.
The instructions found at
http://www.bowmansolutions.com/mingw-openldap/ should give you
a head start.
