No, it's the same as before. samba starts samba and the winbing works as 
before: only uidNumber and gidNumber work:

winbindd -i -d3

winbindd version 4.3.0pre1-GIT-6bbfb09 started.

server role = 'active directory domain controller' not compatible with 
running the winbindd binary.
You should start 'samba' instead, and it will control starting the 
internal AD DC winbindd implementation, which is not the same as this one

Maybe we have to ./configure differently?
./configure --enable-debug
make install
