Hmmm, on my VM, I get:

rsharpe at openindiana:~/samba.master/examples/VFS$ make
Compiling skel_opaque.c
Linking skel_opaque.o
Compiling shadow_copy_test.c
Linking shadow_copy_test.o
Compiling skel_transparent.c
Linking skel_transparent.o
rm skel_opaque.o skel_transparent.o shadow_copy_test.o
rsharpe at openindiana:~/samba.master/examples/VFS$

So, now I need to find out what the problem is on that build farm
machine. There is, however, a small but. The Linking message is
slightly wrong.
