I don't know because I haven't figured out how the 'f' option would be
useful to me but I think the way you are trying to do it is clunky...

#!/bin/sh
#
# usage - myldap-search user
#
LDAP_PASSWD="whatever"
BINDDN="cn=Manager,dc=palermo,dc=edu"
BASEDN="ou=people,dc=mydomain,dc=edu"
for i in `cat users.txt` do;
USER_PASSWD = ldapsearch -x\
   -w $LDAP_PASSWORD \
   -D $BINDDN \
   -b uid=$0","$BASEDN \
   legajo
done

or to do a whole shot of users

#!/bin/sh
#
# input file of users = users.txt
#
LDAP_PASSWD="whatever"
BINDDN="cn=Manager,dc=palermo,dc=edu"
BASEDN="ou=people,dc=mydomain,dc=edu"
for i in `cat users.txt` do;
 USER_PASSWD = ldapsearch -x\
   -w $LDAP_PASSWORD \
   -D $BINDDN \
   -b $BASEDN \
   legajo
  echo $i \t $USER_PASSWD >> /tmp/ldap-output.txt
done

Something like that should do it - untested
