If "make install" does not work correctly, it should be patched
in 3.2.x I believe.  But I haven't followed the discussion thoroughly
so feel to disregard this if it is out of context.


This is correct.  "make install" does not work and forgets to create the
symbolic links to the libraries.  As a result, samba may not start
correctly and generate errors when loading.  Packagers have been able to
get around this; but, users installing from source will have a difficult
time or need to create the symbolic links themselves.
The effected files on my build are libnetapi.so.0, libtalloc.so.1,
libtdb.so.1 and libwbclient.so.0.  But this depends on the build as
there are other libraries that also need symbolic links added, if built.
