I'd preferr the --enable-s3build would be off by default until
everything works
as expected.

But we can add --enable-s3build as separate build like the s3-waf build
in autobuild.

I've tried to add a s3 member into a s4 domain,
but without success yet, see:

I think we should try to add a selftest/target/Samba.pm a bit like this
(from 22 month ago)

I guess for autobuild it would be good to have make test splitted into units
(for now s4, s3 and some combined tests), so that we ask autobuild to
run them
in parallel otherwise we'll raise the time for an autobuild push.
