[Samba] samba 2.2.3a oddities on Solaris with LDAP

I successfully compiled samba 2.2.3a with the following config options on
Solaris 8:

./configure  --prefix=/pkg/net --libdir=/pkg/net/lib/samba --with-privatedir
=/vol/sec/samba --sysconfdir=/pkg/net/etc --with-ldapsam

I'm using the iPlanet 5.1 Directory Server, and I'm getting some odd
behavior with LDAP.

smbpasswd, run as root sets the password just fine.  I see the LDAP traffic
and an ldapsearch reveals that the hash is indeed different.  However, when
smbpasswd is run as a regular user, there's no LDAP traffic and it core

[jshea at vali:/vol/src/net/.real/samba-2.2.3aLDAP/source] $
/pkg/net/bin/smbpasswd jshea
Old SMB password:
Password changed for user jshea
Bus Error (core dumped)

A truss suggests that it isn't even recognizing the use of ldap and is for
some reason using the local file: /vol/sec/samba/smbpasswd.

Furthermore, whenever I try to do an smbclient connection to the home
directory, it exits and samba.log's last entry is an ldap_open:

[jshea at vali:/vol/src/net/.real/samba-2.2.3aLDAP/source] $
/pkg/net/bin/smbclient //vali/jshea  ***** -U jshea
added interface ip= bcast= nmask=

[2002/04/11 17:10:28, 2] passdb/pdb_ldap.c:ldap_open_connection(142)
  ldap_open_connection: connection opened

However, there's no ldap traffic.  Any ideas?  Has anyone gotten samba
2.2.3a to work on solaris 8 with ldap authentication?  With the iPlanet
directory server?  If someone has successfully done it with openLdap, then
I'll try it.

Thanks in advance.
