For a file server, you need ACL support if either of the following is true:
- You use POSIX acls on your system - users define ACLs on individual
files and folders to control access to them and allow sharing (e.g.
using getfacl/setfacl tool). The files are also being accessed by other
means than Samba, and Samba needs to play along.
- Your users use the security tab to manage file/folder permissions -
POXIS ACLs are one way to support this partially (but in a way that let
the kernel enforce the ACLs and hence affect any use of the files, not
just via SMB)

I really don't know what went wrong with the ACL support. While the
configure process doesn't include tests for HPUX ACLs, I would imagine
that the build would fail if headers or libraries were missing. With no
access to an HP-UX system and documentation I can't see how I can be of
