Description of problem:
samba will no longer start if the ldapsam passdb backend is configured
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:

(mainly passdb backend = ldapsam, plus for example
ldap admin dn = cn=Directory Manager
ldap suffix = dc=xxxx,dc=com
ldap user suffix = cn=users,cn=accounts
ldap machine suffix = cn=computers,cn=accounts
ldap group suffix = cn=groups,cn=accounts
ldap ssl = off
if an IPA compatible ldap database is used to hold credentials)

smbd no longer starts
smbd starts and works
smbd tries to load the backend from:
but ldapsam.so is simply not there

Same problem on RHEL7.
ldapsam.so is not in /usr/lib64/samba/pdb/ldapsam.so
This will be fixed automatically with the pull from the fedora repositories after Alpha3.
