Why? Do you need LDAP password changes to change Heimdal passwords (IOW, did 
you have a Heimdal installation before)?

What version did you install?

From the same source used to build slapd on the box the module runs under?

So, you shouldn't need Heimdal at all ...

Well, without Heimdal has been working perfectly for me for a long time.

At times (e.g. 1.3.0 without patches), heimdal API changes have broken the 
Heimdal support in smbk5pwd.

Note that some distributions ship recent OpenLDAP with a working (at least for 
samba) smbk5pwd, others include a smbk5pwd with Heimdal support as well.
