Yes, every time sombody changes a function's definition in Samba, you
need to run 'make proto'.  This is becouse in HEAD we don't keep the
proto.h in CVS (becouse many of the checkings created *massive* diffs on
this file, and it was getting to much bother).

If you made that change to Makefile.in (becouse ./configure regerates
Makefile) then your changes will be preserved until sombody fixes it in
the tree.  That is one of the beuties of CVS.

If good changes just don't seem to make it in, just keep bugging the
list - its usually a matter of 'all Team members currently run off
feet'.  We have a patch tracking system (samba.org/samba-patches) but I
don't follow it myself. :-(
