When we were looking to publish the original 3.0, I lobbied to keep
--with-ldapsam as meaning 'do much as what Samba 2.2 did', because we
had a lot of documentation that told users to do this.  I also wanted it
to be easier to upgrade.

I'm far from certain it remains a good idea.  2.2 is long past, and it
just confuses users now.
