samba-2.0.7 build in separate directory fails

I try to compile samba-2.07 in a separate directory and it fails with :

    Linking bin/smbd
    ld: 0711-934 SEVERE ERROR: Cannot create the output file: bin/smbd
	    ld:open() A file or directory in the path name does not exist.
    collect2: ld returned 12 exit status
    gnumake: *** [bin/smbd] Error 1

because the directory `bin' does not exist in my build directory; the
`bin/.dummy' rule is not enough, because `bin/.dummy' exists in the source

I am the only one trying that, or does a fix already exist ?
