I suppose the only sane way is to try calling functions from libacl. If
they fail unreasonably, then the fs does not support ACLs.

chmod 600 file
setfacl -m u:otheruser:rwx file

should give otheruser write permissions on the file, even if Windows
does not get ACLs right (e.g. W98, which does not know ACLs at all).

>But I am missing something like --WITH-ACL:

smbd -b shows defines, not configure options.
