Gary was working on it when I was last in the office, re-using the
logic from the Heimdal build.  While LDB isn't likely to be thread-safe 
any time soon, Gary was keen to build the right foundations for all of
Samba to move in that direction (with some other library likely the
first to actually qualify), rather than just patch it to strerror().
