FHS isn't Linux-specific, nor can you currently get complete FHS compliance
just by setting Samba's autoconf variables.
[ from the original message:
Even worse, it is not even possible to make it follow the FHS
convention by mere command line arguments. My best try was:
./configure --prefix=/usr \
[ assorted Makefile.in and source code changes required for FHS-compliance
To be honest, Samba's weird conventions have bothered me (and many other
sysadmins) for a long time. Maybe 2.2 would be a good place to change them.
