Thank you Matthew, Sam, for pointing the way out.

Indeed, I did found the necessary files (jldap-beans.xml and components.xml) under /opt/tomcat/components/sakai-provider-pack/WEB-INF. Once I'll be able to make the changes I'll post back and add a comment in Steve's procedure stating how to proceed if you're not building from the sources.

It doesn't look like there's any code changes, so in the demo and binary the files that doc mentions should be in components/sakai-provider-pack/WEB-INF 

You should be able to just modify them in place and restart.

I've read Steve Swinsburg procedure on how to add LDAP support to Sakai ( https://confluence.sakaiproject.org/display/~steve.swinsburg/LDAP+in+Sakai+2.5 ). It worked great. Now I'm wondering wether I can activate LDAP support in a Sakai server that has been installed with the software binaries - would it be possible or would I need to rebuild it from the sources ? 

An LDAP annuary looks to be central to the implementation of any medium-to-big infrastructure, so I do believe it must be possible to handle user memeberships within Sakai through LDAP (defining which user can access which sites) - but I'm having a hard time finding references to it, altough the good documentaiton available. 

Thank you,
