Thanks for the response.

After compiling and installing from the source3/ directory, I get the 
following on executing any binary.

# ./smbstatus -V
Could not load program ./smbstatus:
        Dependent module could not be loaded.
Could not load module
System error: No such file or directory

You might try to do the same in source3, which is the 3.5.4
source tree and see if anything changes.

If you need the Samba4 functionality, please use the current
development tree. You can find a snapshot via
