[Samba] compile samba-2.2.8 with libcups support?

What linux? distribution are you using? If you are
using rpm based distributions try to do a

rpm -q -a | grep cups

You should see cups, cups-libs and cups-devel

If you don't have cups-devel, --enable-cups will fail
silently and thus your smbd will not link with
(You can also check your config.log to see if there
are failures when testing CUPS)

Hope this helps.
