Samba4: File server broken ?

Dear all,

I just cloned a fairly good work server into a test server, get the 
latest samba (it seems because sometimes  I have still problems with git 
...), compile all, remove old installation (but saved appart var and 
private dir), make install and reinstalled var and private

smbclient -U mat \\\\\\common
Domain=[ECV] OS=[Unix] Server=[Samba 4.0.0alpha6-GIT-8e201ec]
tree connect failed: NT_STATUS_INTERNAL_ERROR

[Wed Aug  6 20:53:32 2008 MSD, 0 
Geting the winbind server ID failed.
[Wed Aug  6 20:53:32 2008 MSD, 0 
make_connection: NTVFS make connection failed!

On the real server this command works, if I restore the old version.

At first I thought that it was just due to the fact that libwinbind is 
not really installed by make installlib (ie: ls -rtl*
lrwxrwxrwx 1 root staff 17 2008-08-06 21:11 ->
) but even after removing the broken link and copying the librairy by 
hand I still have the error message.

Can someone help me ?
