this should be installed into ${libdir}/samba/vfs/
(where all other vfs modules(recycle.so ...) are installed too

samba searches for shared vfs modules only in this directory.

or you can use the global 'preload modules' option and specify a module 
by path, then it's loaded on server start.

that's wrong, it should be:

vfs objects =  skel_transparent

all modules are specified by the name they're registered by the 
smb_register_XXX() functions and not by path.
the only 'by path' option is 'preload modules'.
