This innocent change that was perfectly fine for Samba broke ctdb,
and very likely it also broke OpenChange who intimately depend on
the exact library structure in lib/util. We have too many external
dependencies in lib/util to make any change there. What we should do
instead is create a new library subdirectory with a very clear name like
lib/util-samba-internal or something like that.
