The problem is, we intend to ship Samba4 at some stage, and it will need
to install on mostly the same systems that Samba3 currently installs
on.  That means that we should be able to complete a ./configure && make
&& make install, with the same packages.

I don't care what is required to generate the configure - end users
don't need to do that, only developers.
