In this particular instance I think it was easier with Samba3, but for
other things I have found the new Samba4 separation of build logic
much easier to work with than Samba3 (I mean the separate build file
per subsystem).

ok, I'll try that

yes, I wondered if it was some subsystem that was overriding
CFLAGS. The subsystem I suspect is the libregistry stuff, but I have
not actually tracked it down yet.

We will need to watch out affects on PCH for separate CFLAGS. Unless
the CFLAGS are identical for every C file, the pre-compiled header
won't be used. That would be a big loss for me :)
