Hmm, don't know exactly but it simply seems your installed Samba does
not support LDAP.
I can't remember exactly at the moment, but you will most probably need
the ldap-development package(s) be installed when compiling Samba.
(Otherwise it will probably compile and produce .deb-packages correctly
without you noticing that somewhere in the configuration/compilation
output it tells you it can't find LDAP and thus will have no support
for it.)

  hi  libldap2-dev   2.0.23-6    OpenLDAP development libraries.
