I do not like the idea to enforce the libjansson as a requirement to
build the Samba AD DC code.

I've added the --without-json-audit, because there are several systems
where the jansson json libraries are not avaiable - at least not in the
standard repositories.

I've just looked into the RHEL 6 and SLES 11 repositories - there is no
libjansson available. Even SLES 11 and RHEL 6 are supported systems for
the next 4 and 6 years. I would not like to loose the option to build a
recent Samba AD DC on those systems.
