The reason I was thinking was to avoid the regular foot-shooting that
administrators seem to enjoy so much, when they enable every single
option 'because it might help', not knowing the FAM isn't the preferred

Oddly, it doesn't seem to have changed a thing.

I've been running:
make distclean && ./ && ./config.abartlet && make
where config.abartlet is:

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