Yep. Apart from that, if you use --enable-old-ctdb and compile
against a ctdb that has not SCHEDULE_FOR_DELETION command,
that samba/ctdb combo should still be running fine together,
the only difference being that samba would not send the schedule
for deletion to ctdbd in the ctdb_delete_record operation, and
hence not take full advantage of the improved fast-path
vacuuming. Other compile problems should not be related and no
other runtime impact should be created.

You can of course also build against a 1.2 based version of
ctdb. These have the SCHEDULE_FOR_DELETION starting with 1.2.25.
