Well, currently the example is broken, and I submitted a reasonable patch
limited to a couple of changes. You can't tell me "okay, we'll look at
merging it" or, even, "no way, stop submitting patches?"
I'm just trying to help. Trying to get an example to work, as an outsider,
has been unnerving since none of the documentation that Google sent me to
was accurate. At least the example could be functional.

I get the same error. I just did an update (and an ensuing configure).
Waf: Entering directory `/home/dustin/build/samba_git/bin'
Selected embedded Heimdal build
Waf: Leaving directory `/home/dustin/build/samba_git/bin'
input file '../examples/VFS/version.h' could not be found
