Need Help Building Samba with the same options as Mandrake

You could get the SRPM for the Mandrake package you're interested in, and
build it until it has finished running the configure script. At that point,
the file "source/config.status" will have the options it was called with in
a comment near the top. Either that or find the configure options in the
SRPM setup scripts. Then do a autoconf, configure, and make of your new code
with those options.

Here is an example of the contents of config.status, showing the options:

Report bugs to <bug-autoconf at>."
configured by ./configure, generated by GNU Autoconf 2.52,
  with options \"--with-smbmount --with-winbind --with-vfs
--with-profiling-data --with-quotas --enable-debug\"

So if I configure new code, the configure line would be:

./configure --with-smbmount --with-winbind --with-vfs --with-profiling-data
--with-quotas --enable-debug

Subject: Need Help Building Samba with the same options as Mandrake

I've got the Samba source code from CVS. What is the most straightforward
way to build with the same options as the Mandrake use for their RPMS?

Or, how could I make some Mandrake RPMS from the Samba source code?

I want to do this to see if my (previously reported) printing problems with
2.2.3a are fixed yet. I don't want to hit any problems due to different
compile time options though ...

Thanks for any help,
