1GB free disk would be nice, but 2GB memory isn't needed 512MB would do

Ah, thanks! I somehow gets lost somewhere in samba3's configure after
it's added to DYNEXP, I'm debugging this currently.

I don't know, it's AIX 5.2

but with the --uint-enums flags it build fine on samba4...,
so we could workarround.
