Unable to get Samba 4 to pass make quicktest or make test

Oops, meant to send this to the list and not just to Andrew...

If there are additional (new?) requirements for packages, can we add those
to the Samba4/HOWTO, or perhaps as a part of the configure script?  There is
one list of packages there, but it's pretty old.  I'm running into similar
problems running the Samba4 quick tests, though I'm building on a Fedora 13
i686 base, so the package names are a little different.  I tend to work on
my Samba4 project in short sprints separated by long gaps, and it always
seems like it's a horrible struggle to get my repository working again after
I've let it bit-rot for a while. :-(
