Sorry Andrew,
I should have been clearer, I am not opposed to the patch, just to the
statement that only source3 needs to link to MIT and that it will be
possible only if the old autoconf build is used.

I need to compile the whole thing (therefore will need to use the waf
build) and still use MIT for the file server and if at all possible for
all client libraries I can use it with.

I know this is not possible now. But this must be a goal (at least for
the file server) for many reasons.
