I'm building on Fedora 10 with:

`dirname $0`/configure --enable-developer --disable-shared
--disable-shared-libs --prefix=/scratch/samba3

I have libtdb installed, but not libtdb-devel.  When I try and build
Samba3, it ends in:

Using CFLAGS     = -g -g -Wall -Wshadow -Wpointer-arith -Wcast-align
-Wdeclaration-after-statement -Werror-implicit-function-declaration -I.
-I/scratch/samba-2/source3 -I/scratch/samba-2/source3/iniparser/src

      PICFLAG    = -fPIE
      LIBS       = -lcap -lresolv -lnsl -ldl -lpthread
      LDFLAGS    = 
      DYNEXP     = -Wl,--export-dynamic
      LDSHFLAGS  = shared-libraries-disabled -Wl,-z,relro 
      SHLIBEXT   = shared_libraries_disabled
      SONAMEFLAG = shared-libraries-disabled
Linking bin/smbd
/usr/bin/ld: cannot find -ltdb
collect2: ld returned 1 exit status
make: *** [bin/smbd] Error 1

I'm sure I'm just missing something silly (tried LD_LIBRARY_PATH=bin).
