Samba on NetBSD failing to build on the buildfarm

This may well be due to the system being recompiled at the same
time as the Samba build process runs. I believe I have seen 
similar problems from my OpenBSD machine but it is simply an 
intermittent failure and will work on the next go round. As I 
don't see this failure on the build farm currently, I am guessing
it is also an intermittent problem for that machine.

If the system is being rebuilt it is very possible for some headers,
especially those headers, to disappear for a moment (the headers 
are rm'ed & reinstalled.)
