Hello again list

Here is my output from configure 3.0.13:

g-file root # grep -i acl samba.log
 * myconf is:  --with-acl-support --with-pam --with-pam_smbpass
--disable-cups --with-ldap --without-ldapsam --with-quotas

the samba.log was tee'd when emerging on Gentoo.

So as you can see the '--with-acl-support' is there and discovered later
on during configure.

I haven't had the time to test 3.0.14a yet. I'm waiting to see what
Peter Kruse will say about this '--with-acl-support' on his machinery.
