Well.  If it's 2.2.8a then it's defined at compile time (i.e., you
specify you want it, or it autodetects if openldap is installed).  Otoh,
if it's samba-devel (3.0.0b2) then you can modify the behaviour with the
passdb backend smb.conf setting.

  Chances are it's 2.2.8a and you'll need to recompile, unless you
/want/ to use LDAP.

  Best wishes,
