I do not think it is maintained any more, an old version can be found here:


Last updated 5 years ago, but it says that it moved on the 19/09/2007 to 
https://gna.org/projects/smbldap-tools/, but gna.org closed down a few 
years ago.

I cannot find the source anywhere, this doesn't mean it doesn't exist, 
just that I cannot find it ;-)

Can I also point out that you really should upgrade to AD, an NT4-style 
domain is very old technology and Microsoft keeps breaking them.
