We have such a flexible build system these days. Why is it
difficult to make it such that we just don't support the AD
DC without zlib? Correct me please if I'm wrong: We depend
on zlib for compressing DRSUAPI data in a Win2k compatible
manner only, that's my understanding. Neither our file
server nor our domain client (winbind) does this. I don't
see why smbd should strictly depend on zlib when it's not
used in that code at all. Please explain!
