  Unfortunately, this post isn't going to be a lot of help, but I just ran
into another git build failure which I was able to fix by blowing away my
current samba-master directory and doing a clean pull/config/build.  Last
build on that particular test system was around Oct 18.  I jumped too
quickly and just removed the broken master directory (as opposed to renaming
it so I could go back and get more details) before restarting the build.  My

  The one point is, for those people who are seeing issues in suddenly not
being able to build, or with test failures, the failure may not be a broken
library dependency or configure issue.  One thing to test is to remove
(rename, move, etc.) the build directory and start from scratch.  I know
there have been a lot of fixes for cleaning up leftover cruft when things
change, but it looks like there may still be some issues.

  (If I see this error again, I'll do a better job of documenting it....)
