One could even go a step further (as indicated by metze on a
side-track): Since this problem only occurred in an RPM build and
not in our autobuild's standalone build (and assuming it can be
fixed with some adaption to the configure command line) shouldn't
we rather than talking about reverting your change revert the
splitting of the libraries in our build system as a special case
for ctdb's standalone RPM build and instead adapt spec files
(and have packagers adapt spec files) ? That would be logical to
me. (Maybe I don't understand it fully yet...)

After all: why would one want to package CTDB separately from
master/4.2 any more? After all Amitay has made a strong case
of only building and running Samba with the shipped ctdb version.

Cheers - Michael
