If we would really do this we should import samba4 via
'git submodule' as a fork of the v4-0-stable branch
we'll hopefully have soon.

I think we should try to also have all release (vX-Y-stable)
branches in the build-farm and we should use the smbtorture
from the v4-0-stable branch for testing the samba3 branches.

And the alpha2 release (which match the v4-0-stable branch)
still links smbtorture completely static.
Before we merge from v4-0-test into v4-0-stable the next time,
we should make sure it's possible to link smbtorture static.

And we should have a --disable-shared configure option.
