Building samba4 against system Heimdal

OK, I decided to use the inbuilt Heimdal for now (I can pull whatever patches I need from the moonshot branch later, like gss_acquire_cred_with_password()).

Next question: I'm trying to join Samba4 to a W2K8R2 domain as a member server. I try:

sh-3.2# ./samba-tool join -d10
finddcs: searching for a DC by DNS domain
finddcs: looking for SRV records for
dns child failed to find name '' of type SRV
finddcs: Failed to find SRV record for
ERROR(runtime): uncaught exception - Connection to SAMR pipe of PDC for failed: Connection to DC failed: NT_STATUS_OBJECT_NAME_NOT_FOUND
  File "/Users/lukeh/CVSRoot/samba/bin/python/samba/netcmd/", line 134, in _run
    return*args, **kwargs)
  File "/Users/lukeh/CVSRoot/samba/bin/python/samba/netcmd/", line 77, in run

Any ideas how to debug this? nslookup shows the appropriate SRV record exists.
