[Samba] AIX and libldap.a

I had to run Samba 3.0.4 on AIX 4.3 and HP-UX 11.00
On those machines I had to 'rebuild' the static libraries libldap/liblber.
This was due to several LDAP oimplementation present on the machine, the
constructor's and mien (OpenLDAP).

'Rebuild' here is more a trick, linking to the right lib and manually
creating the libldap.a from Openldap *.o files using ar.

Hope it helps...
