Hi List.

Thanks to those who looked at the original Q. You can find that below.
This post is for those who will face the same issue in the future and to 
make "goggling" easier. :-)

There was the following sequence of events on the affected Solaris 9 
server, which led to the issue.

July 2004 - OpenLDAP was upgraded to 2.2.8
Aug 2004 - SAMBA was upgraded to 3.0.7
Sept 2004 - OpenLDAP was upgraded to 2.2.15

After that both SAMBA 3.0.7 and SAMBA 3.0.10 couldn't be built...
After a good advice I checked the location of LDAP_CONST in OpenLDAP 
header files
and found that  it was moved from ldap.h to ldap_schema.h.

Doing manually
#include <ldap_schema.h>
in include/proto.h fixed that issue but a new one popped up,
this time with passdb/pdb_ldap.c (pwd samba-3.0.10/source)

Compiling passdb/pdb_ldap.c
passdb/pdb_ldap.c: In function `ldapsam_modify_entry':
passdb/pdb_ldap.c:1554: error: `ber_tag_t' undeclared (first use in this 
passdb/pdb_ldap.c:1554: error: (Each undeclared identifier is reported 
only once
passdb/pdb_ldap.c:1554: error: for each function it appears in.)
passdb/pdb_ldap.c:1554: error: parse error before numeric constant
passdb/pdb_ldap.c:1555: error: parse error before numeric constant
passdb/pdb_ldap.c: In function `ldapsam_alias_memberships':
passdb/pdb_ldap.c:2758: warning: passing arg 5 of `smbldap_search' from 
incompatible pointer type
make: *** [passdb/pdb_ldap.o] Error 1

At that point I decided that it must be something wrong with OpenLDAP
and upgraded the one to the "latest and greatest" stable 2.2.23.
This made the trick. All headers etc were nicely understood by SAMBA.
No changes in environment variables like FLAGS, CPPFLAGS has been done.
I didn't use any specific place for keeping application-specific headers 
and libraries - all lives in /usr and /usr/local by default.
