CentOS 8 packages missing winbind support?

I'm guessing they're in whatever CentOS's equivalent of the BUILDROOT is. I
haven't found a source for those repos however, but considering they also
build FreeIPA [0], they've gotta have the package tucked somewhere.

FWIW, I mentioned this problem to our internal Samba developers. They said
they've been trying to get it in CodeReady Builder for a while but no progress
has been made. Perhaps someone with a RHEL support contract can file a customer
case asking for samba-devel and we can convince the powers that be to push it?

I'd much rather have this in the upstream CentOS packages than our downsteam
RHEL packages as I don't have the resources to support winbind myself.
