Hmmm...I just installed a clean copy of Woody on a box.  I patched my 
Linux sources with SGI's XFS 1.1 tarball and rolled a kernel.  After a 
reboot, I did an 'apt-get source samba' and a 'dpkg-buildpackage'.

Here's a few things I can think of:

- What version of the Linux kernel did you install Woody from/are 
running?  If you took the default, then you're running a 2.2.x kernel. 
 I'm using a 2.4.18 kernel (At the boot prompt when initially installing 
Woody, type 'bf24' to install a 2.4 kernel).
- When you compiled your kernel, did you include Posix ACL support 
(under file systems when you run 'make menuconfig').
- Before compiling the kernel, I installed Woody's acl and xfsprogs 
packages.  Do you have them installed (it sounds like you compiled them 
from source).
