I have compiled both my kernel (2.4.17) and samba (2.2.3a) to support
ACL/EAs.  It looks like it has gone well, but I get one message that
worries me, but I don't know if it should or not.

checking whether to support ACLs... checking for acl_get_file in -lacl... yes
checking for ACL support... yes
Using posix ACLs
checking for acl_get_perm_np... no

As you can see, the last line is where my concern lies.  Can anyone
shed some light on what is being done here?

Thanks alot,

Al Moote
