The client is meant to be able to use kerberos.  Bugs in libsmbclient
(and the underlying libsmb code) currently prevent that, but it won't
link otherwise.

LDAP would not be strictly required in an ideal world, but I suspect it
will be hard to remove, unless you reconfigure without it (and therefore
remove it from the server)
