In the meantime I compiled 3.2, but I've some problems with the
machine account. I joined the domain with the ubuntu package some
weeks ago (my desktop) and installed samba 3.2 to /opt. I tried to
copy the old samba tdb files from /var/lib/samba to /opt/... but it
seems that something went wong (it was just a quick trial and error
attempt). I have to look into that in the next days.
