Samba 2.2 did not allow LDAP support to be used at the same time as
smbpasswd, so pre-compiled binaries did not support it.  Samba 3.0 does
not use 'ldap server' - instead see 'passdb backend' in your smb.conf

There is a large section in the Samba 3.0 HOWTO that explains how to use
Samba's LDAP support.
