Samba is compiled with acl support option ?

sorry, if i was too unprecise...
of course i'm working with acl's - otherwise i could hardly define those
fine granulated rules
this is, what getfacls on /home/board gives:
~# getfacl /home/board
# file: home/board
# owner: root
# group: root
for some reasons, i don't want to work with "valid users" parameter,
especially while working with scripts
so this solution doesn't meet my expectations (as i already mentioned)
the problem is on the samba-side
on unix-side the user "test_user" has access on /home/board, cause he's
in group "kids", too
but samba just recognised group "users" for "test_user" because
sambaPrimaryGroupSID maps to -> "users"
so samba establishes a connection as user "testuser" / group "users",
which fails because of my restrictive acl :/
so: is "valid users" my only chance?
no way of adding more GroupSIDs for samba-users in LDAP, that samba
recognises, that user "test_user" is in more than one group ?
i mean: unix-side sees this...
~# id test_user
uid=596(test_user) gid=500(users) groups=500(users),522(kids)
thx for your help!!!
