And that's great. Unfortunately, I can't build from the git release on
RHEL 5 or CentOS 5, the autoconf fails miserably and I apparently have
to manually generate a 'source4/version.h' file. Is anyone else trying
to build on RHEL 5?  I recognize that it's pretty seriously out of
date, but I'm afraid it's an industry standard at work for the next
few years until RHEL 6 is out and stable.
