As far as I can tell, it works fine without rebuilding ldb-tools.  Once 
you've rebuilt (and installed) the samba-dc packages (without 
internal_ldb), all of the necessary modules are in /usr/lib64/samba/ldb/.

You just need to export LDB_MODULES_PATH=/usr/lib64/samba/ldb/ before you 
run ldbadd/etc, so that it knows where to find the modules.  I suppose 
what might be cleaner is just to modify samba-dc to install them directly 
to /usr/lib64/ldb/ instead, then you wouldn't have to set any environment
