This sounds great, but it throws:

    New event context requested. Parent: [struct cli_credentials:0x8b156b8]
    New event context requested. Parent: [talloc_new: 
    ldb: Unable to find backend for 'ldap://xxxx'

I'm assuming it's local setup, I've searched for info on smbscript but 
found nothing more than a few irc logs that appear to have gone more 
smoothly. smbscript isn't installed in the target directory, I've added 
.../source/bin to the path. Any clues on what environment I need to set 
to have it find an ldap backend.
