Hmmm, I am on RH7.0 (Damn Red Hat for a sloppy release!) and used RH6.2
before now, and have never had to do that. A quick look at my configure
script, albeit from the head and Samba 2.2 branches shows a space afer #!.

Hmmm, looks like missing tabs ... Are you sure you did not run some of the
files through an editor that replaces tabs with spaces? Very old versions
of Ludwig used to do that and played merry hell with Makefiles.
