[PATCH] selftest: Print error message when smbd does not have ADS support

When smbd cannot be compiled with ADS support, setting up the s3member
environment fails with:

Can't use string ("UNKNOWN") as a HASH ref while "strict refs" in use at
/home/cschmit/test/samba/selftest/selftest.pl line 852.

Add an explicit error message for the missing ADS support to make this
easier to debug.
