I have done a bit more investigating.  It doesn't appear LDAP support is
compiling properly, though I don't know why.  I noticed this in the
output of "configure --prefix=/opt/btifs/samba --with-ldapsam":

. . .

configure: WARNING: libldap is needed for LDAP support
. . .

The files /usr/lib/libldap.so and /usr/include/ldap.h ARE PRESENT and
/usr/lib is in my LD_LIBRARY_PATH.  These are not the libraries/headers
from OpenLDAP, but rather from Solaris.  Is this a problem?

Also, a truss on an execution of the resulting smbd indicates that smbd
is looking for /opt/btifs/samba/lib/pdb/ldapsam.so, which is NOT there.
