[Samba] trouble configuring and compiling

I found the fix...

Basically the problem is that the compile is looking for headers that are
usually distributed with the kernel sources

by grabbing the latest kernel, untaring it in /usr/src, and creating the
following links:

/usr/include/linux -> /usr/src/linux/include/linux
/usr/include/asm -> /usr/src/linux/include/asm-i386

everything worked.

Commands from start to beginning might look something like this:

cd /usr/src
wget http://www.kernel.org/pub/linux/kernel/v2.4/linux-2.4.18.tar.bz2
bzip2 -dc linux-2.4.18.tar.bz2 | tar xvf -
cd /usr/include
ln -s /usr/src/linux/include/linux linux
ln -s /usr/src/linux/include/asm-i386 asm
