That message isn't coming (directly) from anything in smbldap-tools.
Those scripts only call the LDAP module.

Note how the LDAP module *blows up* when IO::Socket::SSL isn't
installed.  If the call to IO::Socket::SSL was wrapped in an eval {}
and the error was handled properly, I'd agree that the dependency was
optional.  Right now it is not.

Besides, LDAP without TLS is pretty worthless.
