The problem is that smbldap-tools appears to be a dead project, last
time I looked, it had disappeared from the internet.
That's the bad news, the good news is, you do not need it ;-)

You have (in your smb.conf):

ldapsam:trusted = yes
ldapsam:editposix = yes

With these lines, Samba itself can admin ldap, I can provide you with
some notes I made last year when testing this very subject, interested ?

Presumably, once you get your PDC up and running, the how is a
question I cannot answer ;-)
