Running smbd -d10 will cause smbd to write build info into log.smb

It's checked for at compile time. You need to be looking for 
something like HAVE_STRUCT_FLOCK64 which is what we use for

What filesystem on the local disk ? Do you have a debug level 10
of the problem ? Have you tried any of the 3.0.1pre releases
(although I don't remember changes in this area).
