What I did in my httpd.conf file;

AuthName "Company"
AuthType Basic
AuthBasicProvider ldap
AuthzLDAPAuthoritative off
AuthLDAPURL ldap://ldap1.company.com/ou=people,dc=company,dc=com?uid
AuthLDAPURL ldap://ldap2.company.com/ou=people,dc=company,dc=com?uid
Require valid-user

This brings up the apache dialogue window and does provide a good layer of
security as if you don't authenticate, you don't even get the URL to phish
for data.
