I can asssure you this is an intended an deliberate feature of ldb
1.4.0 on top of versions of Samba < 4.8.  I'm sorry for not putting in
a blocker against the compilation.

There really isn't any need to test --without-ldb-lmdb, this pid check
was specifically requested to be generic, not limited to the lmdb

Yes.  We have a history where patches to make part of tests optional
have on multiple occasions caused tests not to run at all, so we lock
down the selftest to operating with the full feature set.

I hope this clarifies things,
