Based on the work that I've just completed to make the waf build in
master have no duplicate symbols and (almost all) fully defined
libraries, I would also propose no.
It would be better and safer for users needing such functionality (the
smaller binaries in particular) to use Samba 4.0 alpha16 - the file
server codebase is almost identical, and I have much more confidence in
the waf build there.
The test I use for duplicate symbols is that there are no duplicate
symbol warnings at the end of make SYMBOLCHECK=1.
For fully defined libraries, see the changes I made in the waf build in
We need to do the same for modules (the modules should link to the main
library of the loading binary). We also need to find a way to ensure
that there are no duplicate symbols between a binary and the modules it
