Well, it would be nice for Samba to behave as if configure
did not find utimensat in this case. ENOSYS as an error
message is pretty specific.

source3/modules/vfs_default.c around line 543ff is the piece
that does it. It should be a relatively minor change to
handle ENOSYS to utimensat properly.

Do you have someone @univention to make that change?
