No, I think you are right. I recall seeing the code somewhere, but I
have looked in several openldap versions now and I cannot find it.
Indeed the functions you should look for are the new gnutls_priority_*
I think we can close this bug since there is nothing more we can do from
the gnutls side. Possibly the bug should be re-assigned as a wishlist
on openldap, to add the priority string code. When that is done, the
original submitter can test whether the priority string derived using
gnutls-cli also works through openldap.
