[Samba] Need help with redhat build to --prefix

That was a big help, now I can run ntlm_auth and winbindd and they find
their libraries. 

However, now that I can run ntlm_auth and winbindd with the correct
libraries, it seems that I need to rebuild my samba config to request ADS
support. I am using this configure command:

./configure --prefix=/app/radius/samba/
--with-privatedir=/app/radius/samba/private --disable-cups
--with-wbclient=/app/radius/samba/lib --with-ads --with-ldap

but it is unable to find ldap.h.

It looks like openldap is installed on this machine but I am not sure
ldap.h is around anywhere - it's not in /usr/include or /usr/local/include
- I did a find and it's in source4...
sudo find . -name "ldap.h" -print


but I am building source3. Should I be building source4? or what is the
best way to proceed...?

Thanks in advance...
