IIRC this error was normally due to either missing kernel headers, or a
missing link to the kernel headers. Last time I had a 7.2 box I solved
it by installing kernel-headers on it.

BTW, you might want to try rebuilding the Mandrake SRPM available on the
samba FTP mirrors. It should still build correctly on 7.2 but I don't
have a 7.2 box left to build on.

If you want ACL support you should install the srpm:

$ rpm -ivh samba-2.2.8-2mdk.src.rpm
Edit the samba.spec file and find the %define build_acl in the
build_mdk72 seciont and change the 0 to a 1.

I would appreciate feedback if it still builds on 7.2, or errors if it
does not.
