can anyone please tell me the last samba version (exact version) which
supports autoconf build system.
whether Samba-4.0.26 version support autoconf build system (without waf) ?
Can we assume that samba 4.0.x versions don't need waf to build samba and
can be built only with autoconf?
Thanks & Regards,
