Is waf used for building Samba 3.6.x on Master or is make still used?

We have three build systems that are in use in master, and enforced by
autobuild at the moment.  

 - top level build (builds all of Samba, waf)
 - s3-waf (builds source3 with waf, but doesn't run make test)
 - autotools/make (builds source3)

All these (plus the support libs etc) must build and all except s3-waf
must test correctly for a patch to make it into master. 

See script/ for a sane way to test everything at once.
