--libexecdir=DIR        program executables in DIR [EPREFIX/libexec]

--libdir=DIR            object code libraries in DIR [EPREFIX/lib]

I think modules are object code libaries

I would preferr to use LIBDIR/samba  , LIBDIR/samba/modules , 
LIBEXECDIR/samba or LIBEXEC/samba/modules (but I would like one of the 
first two)

I also don't like the valid.dat , upcase.dat, lowcase.dat installed to 
LIBDIR they should go to LIBDIR/samba/ or CONFIGDIR/ (we should always use 
the subdir samba, exept BINDIR and SBINDIR)

because of that I want to change lib_path() to libsamba_path() and
