Static Linking Through pkgconfig with LDAP/LBER is Broken #1619

In Gentoo, the libcurl.pc file generated for pkg-config has the following line:

$ grep Libs.private /usr/lib64/pkgconfig/libcurl.pc
Libs.private: -llber -lldap

so a call to pkgconfig for static linking returns those libraries in that order:

$ pkg-config --static --libs libcurl
-lcurl -llber -lldap -lz -lssl -ldl -lz -lcrypto -ldl -lz

but ldap depends on lber so linking fails:

$ gcc -o test test.c -static pkg-config --libs --static libcurl

Compilation works if I manually swap the positions of lber and ldap in the command line.

configure: try ldap/lber in reversed order first
When scanning for which LDAP libraries to use, try the -lldap -llber
combination before the reversed order since it has a greater chance of
working when linking with libcurl statically.

Fixes #1619
