The easiest way to solve your issue would be to install Samba4.  Samba4
alphas now include all of Samba, including ntlm_auth (named ntlm_auth3
for now) and winbindd, but critcially, by using the ./configure and make
in the top level (not under source3) you will build with our new build
system.  It handles things like -rpath automatically, so you don't need

(You will still need openldap-devel as recommended).
