No we haven't; we followed section 4 of that document (which is great by 
the way - really useful) that says, "If you are building your module
within the Samba source tree it will need to be placed in the directory 
source3/modules, and the main file (the one that contains your module's 
initialization routine as mentioned below) must be called 
vfs_<module_name>.c"  That appeared to be the "approved" way of building 
modules, as the section on building out of tree had a "Note!" section 
with a bug issue attached to it.  Apologies if we've misunderstood this 
and should have been building outside of the source tree.
