I had a look and the --with-ldap option that you can pass to the configure script cannot take an argument e.g. "--with-ldap=/usr/lib/openldap/bin" where the openldap library files are located. Is there another way to specify the location? Either to the configure script or perhaps afterwards in smb.conf?

Hi, sorry, but at the moment you cannot use ldap, you have to use the 
builtin ldap server, if you run 'samba-tools  domain provision --help' , 
you will find (amongst everything else) this:

                         Test initialisation support for unsupported LDAP
                         backend type (fedora-ds or openldap) DO NOT USE

If you have the ldap server running at the same time (and haven't 
changed anything) then they will both be trying to use port 389, not a 
good idea ;-)
