I doubt it would help.  TNG is complaining that you still have your
"legacy" file around.  It figures you've got a misconfiguration
somewhere so it refuses to go on.

Try setting `--sysconfdir' (in `configure') to unique directories like
/etc/samba-tng and /etc/samba-head.  *Then* try the symlink idea....
