Well... that autobuild stuff was from the times before we had
a combined build. Implying that this requires keep Samba able
to build against external ctdb forever is not correct. After
all, autobuild is our script and it can be changed. And it
_should_ be changed if we go down the path Amitay proposes.

So you could turn your argument into stating that Amitay's patch
is simply not complete in that it forgot to change autobuild. :-)

All that being said, I am also a bit hesitant, but thinking
about it, it is really only consequent and consistent.
