Thank you for that ... now I can see that the various build scripts
are included from source3/wscript_build where it has statements like
bld.RECURSE(../examples/VFS) and so on.

The question then is, for those people who have their own VFS modules
and do not want to place them in the Samba source tree, how do they
build with waf? How to the gain access to all the configuration stuff
and so forth.
