Autoconf nuisance for Samba 2.0

running configure with --with-automount on HPUX (and presumably on 
other OSs too), requires IMHO another sanity check.
configure checks for the presence of rpcsvc/ypclnt.h
If this file does not exist AND the user chooses --with-automount, 
compilation will fail (at least if no -with-nisplus-* options are 
A sanity (fool-proof) check at the end of configure might detect 

Another thing: if --with-ssl is selected, there seems to be no option 
to specify where to look for its include and library files?
Could this be provided by using --with-ssl=PATH where PATH is the 
root of the ssl distribution (e.g. default: /usr/local) and includes 
are searched for in PATH/include, libs in PATH/lib ?
