Checked it out and recompiled the whole thing now. The example modules compile
without errors but Samba seems to have problems with them at run-time:

[2002/03/20 11:57:27, 0] smbd/vfs.c:vfs_init_custom(121)
  Error opening /root/cvs/samba/examples/VFS/
/root/cvs/samba/examples/VFS/ undefined symbol:

All three example modules exhibit this problem. Probably just a stupid little
thing, I'll try to figure it out.
