According to a bit of git digging, the unconditional samba4-libs
dependency was added when site discovery support was implemented.

I'm not sure if you're talking about a proper Debian/Ubuntu backport or

the AD back end at all and only package the LDAP provider? The current
1.8 users are using LDAP only anyway..
