The ldapsamba and ldapsam_compat code accept an ldap URI.
SO the correct way to specify an alternative port is
'passdb backend = ldapsam:ldap://localhost:4389/'.

But again, this really is not related to the --with-ldapsam
option which is only for 2.2 compatible smb.conf settings.
People should have had time to move to the 3.0 syntax by now.
It's been over 2 & 1/2 years since 3.0.0 was released and
over 1 & 1/2 since 2.2 was discontinued.
