You could try using the exclude flag of portupgrade:

# portupgrade -Nvx samba33 openldap23-client

(I havent tested it).

I don't think you would have a problem if it did rebuild the ldap
client though as it should use the same config options that you
originally built it with.

An alternative is to build samba without ldap support by unchecking
that option within make config (I guess you probably want ldap support
with samba though).
