No, it isn't.  According to the 2.2.5 notes, I shouldn't need them.
This worked from 2.2.5 through 2.2.7, which is why I brought it up.
Due to our network configuration, we're not too concerned about the
lack of SSL support.

If OpenLDAP is now a requirement, the documentation should be updated
accordingly.  Of course, OpenLDAP needs to include a pointer to the
Berkely DB source code, but that's another project entirely.

I'll try to locate the OpenLDAP dependencies and rebuild Samba
accordingly.  If that works, I'll post a follow-up message so we can
update the documentation.

Thanks for the pointer.
