It's a little bit more complicated than that. There are some
questions whether the libtool stuff is the right way to go or
not. The whole "let's wrap everything up in a shell script" is
Making a more or less standalone libsmb could be another
interesting project for someone to have a look at. Currently, if
you want to use any of the functions in libsmb, you also need
PARAM_OBJ, DEBUG_OBJ, UBIQX_OBJ and probably some other random
Untangling all the coupling between the various samba subsystems
would be great for reusing code in other projects.
