The OpenAFS ptserver db? I don't think that's a berkeley db.

Do you mean a way of storing ptserver data in an LDAP backend? Or a way
to query ptserver information via LDAP queries?

I'm not aware of any stable/maintained implementations of either at the
moment, but I'm pretty sure there's at least a patch to OpenLDAP for the
latter floating around somewhere. When I wanted something like this, I
just set up something to sync an LDAP subtree to match what was in the
ptdb every so often (and triggered by a 'pts' wrapper, as well).
