Your configure changes are incorrect - they're looking in the wrong
library for acl_get_file (which is in libacl, not libattr), as I
said earlier you need to link with both libraries.

It has been pointed out that we can do a better job when building
libacl so that it knows it depends on libattr (in fact this was
done at one point, but was accidentally dropped from the Makefile).
If you build and install the acl code from XFS CVS (have a look
though cmd/acl/doc/INSTALL), you should find that Samba gets
built correctly with no changes at all now.
