I just bit by something I thought I should warn others about...
I was configuring 2.0.0-beta1 with --prefix=/usr/local because otherwise
it would install to something like /usr/local/samba/samba. This was fixed
in 2.0.0-beta2 but I forgot to remove the --prefix=/usr/local and so I
installed to /usr/local/bin, /usr/local/man, etc. No problem, just do a
make uninstall I think to myself. Argh! It removed all files from
/usr/local/man/man1, man3 and man5. Not a big deal, I have backups, but
it should probably be fixed if the uninstall target is going to be used by
Thankfully, it was a little more careful about what it removed from
/usr/local/bin and lib.
