[Samba] configure failed, with option --with-ads (samba3.0.2a)

I'm trying to do the same...join samba server to AD domain as domain member...and was able to pass this problem by compiling and installing openldap (configure --without-bdb --disable-bdb --enable-null --disable-slapd --disable-slurpd) and then compiled and installed MIT kerberos (configure --without-krb4 --enable-dns --enable-dns-for-kdc --enable-dns-for-realm)
How far have you gotten now?
I've been able to compile samba but the net ads join <OU> -U <admin> just hangs with the message:
      Host account for <hostname> already exists - modifying old account

I'm configuring samba v3.0.2a on Solaris 8 machine.# ./configure   (completed, to be sure default is ok)then rm configure.log and configure.status, start again.# ./configure  --with-ads    (failed)....checking for ldap_initialize... noconfigure: WARNING: libldap is needed for LDAP supportchecking for Active Directory and krb5 support... yesconfigure: error: Active Directory Support requires LDAP support....but libldap is on this machine:% uname -aSunOS hostname 5.8 Generic_108528-17 sun4u sparc SUNW,Ultra-2% pkginfo | grep -i ldapsystem      SUNWlldap      LDAP Libraries% ls -la /usr/lib/libldap*lrwxrwxrwx   1 root     root          14 Mar 24  2003 /usr/lib/libldap.so -> ./libldap.so.4-rwxr-xr-x   1 root     bin       225808 Jan  5  2000 /usr/lib/libldap.so.3-rwxr-xr-x   1 root     bin       225712 Aug 30  2002 /usr/lib/libldap.so.4The reason to use --with-ads, is that I want to join Samba server to Active Directory domain as a member server.  (security = ADS)
