As S4 needs python anyway and Python is a pain to cross-compile, I've done 
some native builds with waf on my ARM Cortex-A8 system. As that's a pretty 
normal Ubuntu Linux, it's not very surprising that this works.

I've also played with cross-compiling Samba (both 3 and 4) to the Android 
platform recently, but both of them stubbornly resisted my attempts so far, so 
I didn't even think about looking at waf for that.
