As indicated above, this has been fixed in v3-3-test more than a
month ago. Here is my mail to samba-technical that explained the
changes and asked whether these should go into 3.2.X.


There has been no reply so far. Karolin had expressed concerns about
the depth of the changes to the build system. (It were some 40 or 50
commits, see the list included in the mail.)

On concern I had myself is that the packagers have already put
their workarounds for the broken library install to their
packaging automatisms (just like they had already done before with

I, personally, am happy with fixing these things in 3.2.2, but I
did not want do decide it alone.

Btw: One more thing that would really ease the packaging would be
the configure-time separation of libdir and modules dir, so that
the libs can directly be installed into /usr/lib[64]/ while the
modules shoudl go into /usr/lib[64]/samba/. 

See bugs #5592 (https://bugzilla.samba.org/show_bug.cgi?id=5592)
and #5609 (https://bugzilla.samba.org/show_bug.cgi?id=5609).

Any opinions?
