As far as I know, no ldap or kerberos means no support for Active 
Directory "net ads".
In other words, you won't be able to join as a member server of a 2000 
or 2003 AD in native mode, but old fashioned NT40 "net rpc" commands 
ought to work with a NT40 PDC or 2000 in mixed mode.  Or just old peer 
to peer workgroup.  Maybe someone who's used samba3 "net rpc" or "net 
rap" will correct me if I'm wrong.

I never used no, but from configure --help
Optional Packages:
  --with-PACKAGE[=ARG]    use PACKAGE [ARG=yes]
  --without-PACKAGE       do not use PACKAGE (same as --with-PACKAGE=no)
so my guess is
--with-ldap=no or --without-ldap
