[Samba] compiling samba-3.4.x on RHEL4

I am running into this same problem -- the source of the problem appears 
(to me) to be earlier in the compile, before the warnings/errors that 
Werner quoted.   I found reference to being unable to load "config.h".

The compile appears to be being executed with a current directory of 
'samba-3.4.1/source3/', and is directly compiling replace.c and talloc.c in 
their respective directories.  Both fail without access to "config.h".

To test, I set the current directory into the BUILD/samba-3.4.1/source3/ 
directory, and re-executed the gcc command from the output.  With this, I 
was able to duplicate the warning/error output from the package build. 
When I appended " -Iinclude" to the same command, the compile completed 
successfully -- without any errors or warnings.

Therefore, I have to conclude that the include paths are not being set 
correctly for these component compiles.   I have not had the time yet to 
dig any deeper into the Makefile/specfile structure to determine where this 
problem lies.
