Bugzilla 83 reports and fixes a general configure problem, new, I think,
"make" fails if "$(builddir) != $(srcir)"
Folk who build in the source directory are unaffected. But it is a
showstopper for sites supporting multiple architecures, and/or wishing to
keep srcdir clean etc., that do the build outside the source directory.
The first fix, a one-liner, is in the bugzilla report.
The second is in the email thread (referenced from the report):
3.0alpha24: make bug (or more...)
on samba-technical. It has the beneficial side-effect of cleaning up some
previously unclean behaviour. (Or, depending on one's viewpoint: the
clean-up is the major aspect, and the side-effect is that non-srcdir
builds work again.)
Andrew Bartlett had shown an interest in this patch, but I've not heard
from him since the end of last week.
Jerry: If you still need further convincing, or need any clarification
etc., please do feel free to contact me.
