[SAMBA4] Trouble with recursive depenencies

I've been having trouble of late with Samba's enforcing of non-recursive
dependencies, particularly for plugins to ldb.

We have quite a large array of plugins, and from time to time they
depend on things that depend on the credentials subsystem.  This then
depends on ldb, which depends on all the plugins.

As the recursive dependencies are only an issue if building shared
libraries, which would I presume use .so format plugins, can we remove
the recursive check?  

For the moment, I've worked around this at various times in various
ways:  mostly by breaking things up even more, but sometimes it gets
quite silly...
