From podlators 2.5.0 onwards, the default action with POD syntax errors is to die (see http://cpansearch.perl.org/src/RRA/podlators-2.5.0/ChangeLog).

The smbldap-config script contains no POD and hence generates an empty manpage when pod2man is run on it. Furthermore, pod2man treats this as an error, and dies, resulting in "make" stopping:

...
Building smbldap-groupshow.8 from smbldap-groupshow.cmd ...
Building smbldap-passwd.8 from smbldap-passwd.cmd ...
Building smbldap-populate.8 from smbldap-populate.cmd ...
Building smbldap-useradd.8 from smbldap-useradd.cmd ...
Building smbldap-userdel.8 from smbldap-userdel.cmd ...
Building smbldap-userinfo.8 from smbldap-userinfo.cmd ...
Building smbldap-userlist.8 from smbldap-userlist.cmd ...
Building smbldap-usermod.8 from smbldap-usermod.cmd ...
Building smbldap-usershow.8 from smbldap-usershow.cmd ...
Building smbldap-config.8 from smbldap-config.cmd ...
pod2man: unable to format smbldap-config.cmd
make: *** [smbldap-config.8] Error 1

Simplest fix would be to add some POD for smbldap-config. I'm appending the following text to smbldap-config.pl for now:

_END_

=head1 NAME

smbldap-config - Configure the smbldap-tools

=head1 SYNOPSIS

smbldap-config

=head1 DESCRIPTION

An interactive script to configure the smbldap-tools to work with your
existing LDAP server(s). Before running it, you should ensure that your
samba controller is up and running, and that the domain SID is defined
(you can check it by running 'net getlocalsid').

One other minor nit - the Free Software Foundation has changed address and is no longer at 59 Temple Place (an address mentioned in the copyright headers of various files). The new address is:

51 Franklin Street, Fifth Floor
Boston, MA 02110-1301
USA
