Same here...

I just got back and started to look at it.  It is the last thing in the
top level wscript_build:


and only seems to do anything if configure has been run with

I think that when a library depends on a subsystem, then the library
ends up including the objects for that subsystem.  So, I suppose that
tdb-wrap, samba-util and errors all contain samba-debug.

I'm hoping there's a way around this.  Fine-grained dependencies (like
samba-debug) are obviously more useful than coarse-grained - you
shouldn't always be forced to depend on samba-util.

More news as it comes to hand...
