The problem is that ldbedit will not have the required symbols to load
the sam.ldb related modules, that would only work.

And until we've all the required symbols in a library, having everything
staticly liked is much easier.

The long term goal should be to support both, but then we need shared
libraries and shared modules, at least for samdb related ldb modules.
