I've added and additional blocker to remove some Samba4-specific files
to discourage building Samba4 from 3.6, and in particular to avoid folks
finding a Makefile and ./configure in the top level that does not build

'make test' still builds Samba4 for smbtorture with this patch, as it
has it's own way of running waf. 

Thanks for all the hard work handling the release!
