Right now, along the lines illustrated by Howard, I've committed
everything to contrib/slapd-modules/samba4.  You may need to tweak the
Makefile if you are not building in the source tree (as I usually do; then
adjust LDAP_BUILD to your build tree), and if you wish to install modules
in some specific place (prefix, exec_prefix, ldap_subdir).

My medium term objective would be to have:

- generally useful modules built-in (e.g. slapo-deref)

- Samba4-specific modules all in one contrib directory, possibly
harmonized and consolidated when possible in a single module, to ease
configuration and maintenance

The latter could then have a specific configure, if needed, so that
packagers could make and install them as easily as possible.  In the
meanwhile, we should live with this interim solution.  Time permitting, I
see no issue in maintaining that code, much like we already do with the
other modules.
