I'm glad you like it.

I didn't want to make too much of a mess and I suspect most everything
will fail because the REQUIRED_SUBSYSTEMS for most subsystems is wrong.
I.e fo

Once these problemos are worked out you can invert the default of the
LINKTEST variable to disable tests individually.

Yeah that's kind of a hassle.  I think we may be doing well in that
department since we already build libsmbclient relatively sucessfully.
We should install libraries and headers in $prefix, and leave the hard
stuff to the distro packagers.
