Well.. that can be done indeed.

It'd be nice if the same binaries of ldb can be tested which
will be installed, not the ones which are built especially for
the test (with different config options, since main build is
samba itself).  I dunno how useful it is, - probably still
useful but much less so than testing actual binaries.

It also requires copying whole source to a temporary/scratch
directory because samba does not support out-of-tree builds
and `make clean' doesn't work either.

Thank you for the suggestions!
