Samba does not require LDAP libraries, but it sounds like the nmbd binary you are using has been
compiled with LDAP support included.
If you want to use Samba without LDAP you will need to obtain a binary comiled without LDAP support, or
compile your own binary from the source code. Or you could install the LDAP libraries by downloading
them from www.OpenLDAP.org, again I think you'll need to compile them yourself,

 thanks Andy.
