Ok, I have kernel 2.4.19-xfs from cvs at sgi and recompiled it to fit my 
hardware (I used dpkg-make to build the kernel debs).

nichtsnutz:~/samba-2.2.3a/source# dpkg -S getfacl
acl: /usr/bin/getfacl
acl: /usr/share/man/man1/getfacl.1.gz

So this should do:
apt-get install acl acl-dev

I still use samba-2.2.3a-6 that I got using
apt-get source samba

Then I edited samba-2.2.3a/source/configure as described. Then 
./configure --with... showed me Posix acl support, make and make install 
  gave me samba running with acl support. But not a debian package. As 
mentioned before, I already wrote a bug report to debian since there 
seems to be a bug in configure.in.
