It doesn't matter since the same result is achieved on current stable
debian (bullseye) and current unstable "rolling release" (provided all
external dependencies are satisfied - and there's no new build dependencies
as far as I can see).

Yes ofcourse, the current steps definitely work with previous releases
of samba - this is exactly how samba package in debian is built.

The build problems I outlined are within samba, at least some of them,
and I described the reasons why it is so and provided the fixes for
some (or at least work-arounds).

My intention is to get some help with the samba build system, using
the issues I'm seeing as examples.
